LAKEPORT, Calif. – The third annual Shred Fest 2012 event that was held on Thursday, May 3, was a huge success that provided an opportunity for community members to securely destroy their documents free of charge.
This annual community service event sponsored in partnership with Strong Financial Network and Umpqua Bank produced a total of 299 boxes and/or sacks that were shredded on site by the Shred-It truck.
It is estimated that in excess of 70 trees were saved during this event.
For those that were unable to participate on May 3, Umpqua Bank at the Lakeport and Kelseyville locations will have shred bins available through the month of May, until they are filled.
Stay tuned for next year’s event that will be held in April 2013.
