Shred Event Helps Destroy Sensitive Documents

Vantage is always looking for ways to serve the community, and one such way took place Saturday, May 7, during Cooperative Credit Union Shred Days, one of the many free shred events sponsored by the St. Louis Chapter of Credit Unions. Those without a way to safely and securely dispose of sensitive documents were invited to bring their material to a number of events hosted by local credit unions.

Two shred trucks destroyed nearly 10,000 pounds of credit union members’ sensitive material at 1040 Cave Springs Boulevard, across the street from our Cave Springs branch.

St. Louis Bicycle Works was also on hand to accept bicycles for their Earn-a-Bike recycle program. Over 35 bicycles were donated to this worthy cause; they will be used in classes for underprivileged children to learn bicycle safety and maintenance. Upon graduation from the program, each participating child receives a bicycle and helmet to take home.
