"Our members had been asking us when our next shred day was going to be so they could safely dispose of damaged personal paperwork they were finding while sifting through the rubble left by the tornadoes," said Matthew Stratton, TFCU senior vice president of marketing.
"We decided a special event in Moore would be helpful," Stratton added. "We have been urging those affected to properly dispose of any damaged documents they found during recovery and wanted to give them a way to do that easily."
Rite Way Shredding brought a truck to First Baptist Church in Moore, where TFCU employees assisted members and residents.
In addition to the unscheduled shred day for Moore residents, TFCU had already scheduled seven shred days throughout 2013.
