Who would think that shredding documents and collecting food go together? BankCherokee does, and we make it fun!
Several times annually, BankCherokee partners with Shred Right, an AAA NAID Certified shredding company, to shred confidential and sensitive papers free of charge for our customers. And we combine these popular shred events with a food drive, complete with Finnegans Reverse Food Truck—a bright green mobile operation that collects food and money for the hungry in Minnesota.
2019 Shred Event / Food Drive dates, locations and times:
- Saturday, May 11, Smith Avenue branch, 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.; and
- Saturday, September 7, North Oaks branch, 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.
So gather up your paperwork. But bring more than those documents you no longer need. Show support by contributing non-perishable food items, as well as cash. BankCherokee matches all food donations you bring in. In addition, Finnegans profits support the Emergency Foodshelf Network's Harvest for the Hungry, an innovative program through which fresh produce is purchased from local farms and then distributed to local food shelves.
(Oh—and bring your appetites: We’ve got hot dogs, cookies, and beverages, some of them frosty and cold.)
Please limit your paper to two grocery bags or file boxes per person.
