Central Valley Community Bank holds free document-shredding events

Central Valley Community Bank has scheduled more than a dozen document-shredding events through May 19 at its branches around the Valley.

The bank offers the shredding events each year to promote identity-theft protection. Each person or business can bring up to four bankers boxes of documents to be shredded for free at each event until the shredding truck is full. The bank wants people to remove binders, metal clips and other non-paper pieces before arriving.
