Comerica Bank Shred Day DFW returns April 23 and celebrates 10th anniversary
Comerica Bank will also help fight hunger during the event. The North Texas Food Bank will be collecting cash donations as well as non-perishable food on site. The first 300 guests who donate to the food bank will receive a free gift.
“For a decade, our partnership with iron mountain and the North Texas Food Bank raised awareness of the importance of preventing identity theft, protecting the environment and fighting hunger in north texas“said the president of the Dallas market Amanda Mahaney. “At Comerica, we are proud to invest in the communities where we live and serve, and our Shred Day event is another opportunity for us to raise expectations of what a bank can be by offering this free community event.”
The public is invited to bring an unlimited amount of paper documents, personal or professional, to be safely destroyed and recycled – there will be a special lane to accommodate large loads. A full list of Shred Day guidelines and event information can be found by visiting www.comerica.com/ShredDayDFW.
Since 2011, Shred Day DFW has collected more than 3.2 million pounds of paper for recycling while providing just over 430,000 meals to DFW area residents served by the North Texas Food Bank.
“The timing of Shred Day fits well with the upcoming tax deadline and annual spring cleaning, a time when many people are looking to safely dispose of sensitive paper documents that are no longer needed,” Mahaney said. “But the most impactful element of the event is filling the pantries of the North Texas Food Bank just before summer, one of the hungriest times for young people unable to get free help for meals at school due to summer holidays.”
Shred Day, a signature Comerica community event also held in the Detroit, Houston and Phoenix markets, has played a key role in the bank’s commitment to sustainable development. For the third year in a row, Comerica has earned a spot on the 2021 Global 100 list of most sustainable companies by Corporate Knights. Comerica is one of 20 US-headquartered companies on the list and the only US bank represented with a ranking of 52nd.
