A benefit document shredding event is scheduled to continue April 9 at the Alpine Bank location in downtown Grand Junction.

The event is set for 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 9 in the parking lot behind the bank at 225 N. Fifth St.

“This community service is a great motivator to clean out old documents, and it’s reassuring to know that all the paper is destroyed onsite,” said Tyler Dahl, regional president of Alpine Bank. “Shredding sensitive documents helps our customers and community avoid identity theft and fraud.”

The event offers participants a chance to securely destroy old documents, including bank and medical records, credit card bills and tax documents. Participants may bring up to four banker-sized boxes of documents.

Although the event is free, participants are asked to donate $5 per box of documents to shred to Mesa County Partners, a nonprofit organization that helps youth develop a positive self-image and sense of belonging while also accepting responsibility for their actions.

Headquartered in Glenwood Springs, Alpine Bank operates locations across Colorado and serves more than 160,000 customers. For more information, visit
