Ti Credit Union 2013 005

Pictured are Wendy Courtright , Elizabethtown Branch Manager of the Ticonderoga Federal Credit Union (TFCU), and Alan Jones Adirondack Community Action, CEO unloading food collected at the TFCU’s annual Shred Fest. The event was held as part of Credit Union Week.  This year’s celebration included three Member Appreciation BBQs, the Credit Union’s 4th Annual Shred Fest and a carnival-themed Member Appreciation Event.  The Shred Fest, a free paper shredding event aimed at increasing public awareness of identity theft prevention, produced over 5600 lbs. of shredded paper, resulting in a $443.10 donation to be split among three area food pantries, including ACAP. The public was invited to bring their personally identifying documents to shred on site in a mobile shredding truck.  Non-perishable food donations were accepted in exchange for free paper-shredding and divided among three area food pantries.
