Credit Union 1 is grateful for the support of our community, and we show that appreciation in a variety of ways. Our REACH Committee coordinates more than 20 events each year for our staff to become involved. Events range from fun runs to fundraising drives and much more - all meant to help strengthen the quality of life for our members, friends, families, and neighbors.
During the month of May, Credit Union 1 will be having a Shred Event. Shredding sensitive documents is one way to reduce your risk of becoming an identity theft victim. Identity thieves steal their victims’ information and money, damage their credit score and their ability to secure a loan, and to add insult to injury, tarnish their reputation by also committing crimes in their name.
Throughout the month of May, several of our branches will be hosting a Shred Event to provide a secure way for our members and the people in our communities (excluding businesses) to destroy your personal information and keep it out of the hands of crooks. To allow us to accommodate as many people as possible, bring up to 2 file boxes, or 3 grocery bags full of confidential documents to be shredded at one of the Credit Union 1 Shred Events listed below. Documents will be shredded onsite free of charge.
Please do not bring items that will jam the shredder.
Items to Shred
Items NOT to Shred
Bank or Credit Card Statements
Papers with Account Numbers, Social Security Numbers, or Medical History

Non-sensitive documents that can be disposed of in your trash or Recycle Bin.
Credit Union 1 and its employees are not responsible for any documents removed from our immediate area prior to shredding. It is the sole responsibility of the person to supervise their material at all times while waiting to have the information shredded. Credit Union 1 is not liable for the theft or misuse of information that is left unattended by the person.

The process to request participation from Credit Union 1 is fairly simple:
