North Shore Bank Community Shredding Day

Volunteers, along with their friends and families, helped prepare documents for shredding.

North Shore Bank held its 12th annual Community Shredding Day on May 5. Its Brookfield Square branch collected 13 tons of outdated, personal documents for secure shredding.

North Shore Bank sponsors the annual event at all of its 46 branches in eastern Wisconsin and northern Illinois, and has collected hundreds of tons of paper since the effort began.

“We know that spring is the time of year when many people declutter their homes and sort through old personal documents,” said Sue Doyle, senior vice president of retail banking for North Shore Bank. “Our annual Community Shredding Day provides an opportunity for residents to reduce their financial paper trail and help protect against identity theft. We are thrilled that so many people were able to take advantage of this free, secure service, and we look forward to doing it again next year.”
