Community Savings Bank held another one of its popular spring Shred-a-Thons on Saturday, May 13, 2023 as part of the bank’s efforts to prevent identity theft. Customers and members of the community were invited to shred old checks, bank statements and other documents containing personal information at no charge. “We encourage area residents to take advantage of this opportunity to shred documents with confidential information,” said Dane H. Cleven, president and chairman of Community Savings. “This event reinforces our commitment to being ‘Your Personal Neighborhood Bank.” A mobile industrial shredder was parked in the bank’s main parking lot from 9 a.m. to noon. Area residents appreciated this helpful service offered once again by Community. Their documents were destroyed in the large shred truck as they watched. Destruction of old documents is recommended to help prevent identity theft. Community Savings Bank is an independent neighborhood financial institution located at Cicero and Belmont avenues in Chicago. For more information, visit
