Mark your calendars! Tyler Area Credit Unions will host a shredding event to help the Tyler community protect identities and finances.

Personal security is becoming more important and Tyler local credit unions want to give people the opportunity to safely shred important documents. The theme for this year is "People Helping People."

The event is scheduled for Dec. 3 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at United Heritage Credit Union located at 522 South Broadway in Tyler. The community is invited to bring sensitive documents they no longer need to be safely and securely shredded.

For more information about this event, call Rae M. Oakes, Marketing Director for Kelly Community Federal Credit Union at 903-597-7291 ext. 1423.
