Alpine Bank schedules benefit shredding event

Alpine Bank has scheduled a benefit shredding event at two locations in Grand Junction.

The event is set for 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 22 at Alpine Bank locations at 225 N. Fifth St. and 709 Horizon Drive. Old bank statements, medical records, tax documents and other paperwork will be shredded on site by Colorado Document Security. The shredded paper will then be recycled. A donation of $5 for a banker-size box of documents is suggested. Donations will go to Mesa County Partners and the Boy Scouts.

“Alpine Bank is pleased to once again offer this shred services to our customers and our community,” said Carolee Hawkins, regional marketing director of Alpine Bank. “Not only is it a great way to keep your information safe, but the paper is able to be recycled, so it’s a win-win on all fronts.”

Barbara Bowman, past president of the Grand Junction Rotary Club, said her group is collaborating with Alpine Bank on the event. “Shredding is such a great benefit to two important organizations in our community, Partners and the Boy Scouts. The money we raise provides more opportunity for kids involved with both organizations.”

Goodwill will accept electronic waste — including computers, printers and other small electronic devices and appliances — at the downtown Alpine Bank location. A donation also is suggested for electronic waste disposal.

Headquartered in Glenwood Springs, Alpine Bank operates 38 locations across Colorado. For more information, visit the website at
