(Aberdeen, October 20, 2010)— As part of its Personal Security Awareness Month, Aberdeen Proving Ground Federal Credit Union [APGFCU] hosted a free Shred-It Day at its Aberdeen, Edgewood, Elkton, Laurel Bush and North East branches. Attracting over 600 members, the event shredded and recycled nearly 10,000 pounds of paper, the equivalent of saving nearly 80 trees.
The annual event is designed to provide a fun and fast means for APGFCU members to dispose of sensitive information, decreasing the chance of it being stolen by “dumpster divers” and burglars, and is an effective way to safeguard personal financial information while recycling paper.
APGFCU is also committed to helping members protect their financial information and prevent fraud by offering free online educational resources and free e-Services. For more information, visit www.APGFCU.com or call 410-272-4000, and press four
