Community Savings Bank held another one of its popular Shred-a-Thons earlier in May.

A mobile industrial shredder was parked in the bank’s main parking lot from 9am to Noon for personal papers to be shredded. Destruction of old documents is recommended to help prevent Identity Theft. The bank will hold its next Shred-a-thon in October. Please watch for dates and times. Community Savings Bank is a member of the FDIC and is an equal housing lender. The bank is located at 4801 W.

Shown are two of many bank “helpers” who gave hundreds of neighbors a hand by dropping boxes of their personal papers into a dumpster just before shredding.
