Arvest Bank will host a free Shred-a-Thon for the Mountain Home community on Saturday, April 2, from 10 a.m. to noon at the Arvest Bank branch located at 2619 Hwy 62 East next to Walmart.
The complimentary shredding event provides a convenient opportunity for residents to drop off personal and confidential documents to be destroyed by Shred-It on-site, helping protect against the risk of identity theft. There is no charge for the shredding services; however, donations will be accepted to benefit The Food Bank of North Central Arkansas as part of Arvest’s annual Million Meals initiative.
“Consumers need to take advantage of every safety measure possible when it comes to protecting their identity, both digitally and with printed documents,” said Scott Copeland, community president for Arvest Bank in Mountain Home. “The Shred-a-Thon provides our community with a trusted resource for shredding documents, as well as an opportunity to help support an important local food partner.”
In order to minimize contact and serve as many people as possible, residents are asked to place up to five boxes of documents in their trunk, remain in their vehicles and follow traffic direction as they drive through. Document shredding will take place on-site, so residents can be assured that personal information has been destroyed.
The event is free, but monetary donations will be accepted to support the The Food Bank of North Central Arkansas.
