PARSIPPANY — Valley National Bank hosted a free Shredding Event on Saturday, October 7, at the Parsippany branch, located at 800 Route 46 West.
This event was partnered with USA SHRED, which provided an on-site truck to shred personal and confidential documents, at no cost, to help customers avoid becoming victims of identity theft.
Canned and dried nonperishable food items were collected to benefit the Parsippany Food Pantry and the Parsippany-Troy Hills District 5 Fire Department had a fire truck on-site for kids to explore.
Residents from the community were encouraged to bring documents such as old bank statements, checks, income tax returns, credit card statements, etc., that can be shredded on-site, for free. Staff members discussed effective measures that can be used to reduce the risk of fraud and identity theft.
