Alexandria, VA — CommonWealth One Federal Credit Union branches in Alexandria and Harrisonburg, Virginia helped hundreds of people protect themselves from identity theft by providing free shredding services in April.
CommonWealth One’s semi-annual free community shredding events help credit union members and the community get their personal documents shredded and recycled securely, including old tax records, bills, paycheck stubs and more. This can help prevent personal and financial information from falling into the wrong hands and is an important step in preventing identity theft and fraud.

At April’s free, one-day event on April 29, more than 31,200 lbs. of paper were shredded at CommonWealth One branches in Alexandria and Harrisonburg, Virginia. More than 500 Alexandria and Harrisonburg residents participated in the April community shred day. The semi-annual events are free and open to the public.

CommonWealth One staff were on hand at both locations to personally assist credit union members and the public with disposing of their materials. Branch managers and staff were also available to answer questions about mortgages, auto loans, checking and savings accounts, opening accounts online and other financial products and services.
