For the City Times
United Way of Inner Wisconsin was awarded a $1,000 check from River Cities Bank on Monday.
The donation is from their third annual “Community Shred Day” event held on Sept. 14. During the event, community members were able to have their sensitive documents shredded on-site by Shred Safe, free of charge – and River Cities Bank donated $1.00 per pound collected up to $1,000.
During the event, the goal was exceeded, and 3,539 pounds of paper was collected. Since participants could bring a maximum of two boxes to be shredded free, and donate $5.00 for each additional box, River Cities Bank was able to collect an additional $390.
All proceeds will be added to the 2016 United Way of Inner Wisconsin campaign.
