Wells Fargo, REACH to host free Shred Day
Wells Fargo and REACH, Inc., a nonprofit organization providing support services for people with disabilities, will offer free paper shredding services to help Juneau residents and small businesses prevent fraud and recycle paper.

Community members are invited to bring up to 50 pounds of paper documents to be shredded and recycled by REACH. Free refreshments will be provided by Wells Fargo. The event will happen Saturday, Oct. 4 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the Wells Fargo Glacier Valley Store located at 9150 Glacier Highway in Juneau.

"REACH is pleased to work with Wells Fargo to encourage people to destroy confidential personal and business documents properly, rather than disposing of them in non-secure garbage bins," said Richard Fagundes, REACH executive director.

"One of the keys to combating fraud and identity theft is to prevent personal information from getting into the wrong hands," said Mindy Kissner, Wells Fargo Glacier Valley store manager. "With this Shred Day event, we are increasing awareness about the importance of shredding confidential documents and recycling paper at the same time."
