The First National Bank offers Free Document Shredding & Community Outreach Awards
In response to the public’s overwhelming attendance at the bank’s previously sponsored free shredding events, The First National Bank is once again doubling the document shredding capacity to meet the public’s demand. The document shredding event will continue at its new, bigger venue – The Bucks County Community College. It will be held on Saturday, April 14th.
Additionally, The First will be accepting canned goods at the event and at its 12 branches across Bucks County in support of local food pantries. Anyone donating a canned good is able to nominate their favorite local charity for a $500 award from The First. The activities are being held in celebration of Community Banking Month.
“We are delighted to offer this free service to the public as part of our effort to support Community Banking Month and we know from past experience that the public loves helping protect themselves against identity theft by bringing documents in to be permanently destroyed,” said Dan Shaffer, President of The First. “We do this every year and have expanded capacity to make the event move faster and be even more successful.”
Multiple shredding trucks will be on hand at the Community College location off of Swamp Road. Signs will direct cars once they enter the property. The event will occur between 9am and 11am at 275 Swamp Road in Newtown. Directions to the Community College can be found at www.bucks.edu.
The Salvation Army will be on hand at the shredding event collecting canned goods and nonperishable food donations. The bank will accept canned donations throughout the month at all 12 branches in Bucks County. Nomination forms for recognizing an individual charity are available at each bank branch and also may be downloaded at the bank’s website www.FNBN.com.
Founded in 1864, The First is Bucks County’s oldest, most established bank, with twelve branches throughout Bucks County. First National Bank is committed to local ownership, operation and investment.
