LIVONIA, Michigan – To help members and Detroit area residents protect their personal information, Co-op Services Credit Union will host a free Shred Day event from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, October 20, 2012. The event will be held in the parking lot of the credit union’s headquarters located at 29550 Five Mile Road, just west of Middlebelt Road in Livonia.
Each person who stops by is invited to shred up to six boxes or bags of documents free and enter a prize drawing to win a free personal document shredder.
“This Shred Day event is one of many valuable services we provide throughout the year to help members keep their financial information secure,” said Lisa Fawcett, vice president of marketing for Co-op Services Credit Union. “This is a safe way to dispose of unneeded documents, including any financial information, so that it doesn’t fall into the wrong hands.”
The event also coincides with the end of International Credit Union Week that that is celebrated each October by more than 186 million people worldwide who benefit from credit union services that help to improve the lives of individuals, families, communities and countries around the globe.
During the week of October 15, Co-op Services is inviting members and others to stop by any of its Detroit area branches to receive a free credit card protector. This special sleeve provides another means of protection against data theft so that the information on your credit card cannot be read.
Headquartered in Livonia, Co-op Services Credit Union has more than 50,000 members and maintains eight full-service branch offices in the Detroit metro area. Members also have access to more than 3,000 shared branches and 28,000 ATMs nationwide. For more information about Co-op Services, visit the credit union web site at www.cscu.org or call 800.321.8570.
