Posted by Katy Wagnon on November 15, 2022
Hughes Federal Credit Union, based in Tucson, Arizona, invited residents to shred sensitive, personal documents at the Leman Academy of Excellence in Marana and bring unwrapped gifts for infants and children hospitalized at Banner Diamond Children’s Medical Center on Saturday, Nov. 5.
Participants brought up to 15 pounds or three boxes of documents for each donated item and entered to win a $100 Visa® gift card. The donated toys included small-to-medium-sized stuffed animals, Legos, Uno cards, burst-resistant stress balls, light spinners, Pop-Its, infant toys, small packs of Diamond toys, Fidget toys, and activity kits.
“We are thrilled to give our community the opportunity to both protect their personal information to avoid identity theft and support local hospitalized children in need,” said Hughes’ President Robert J. Swick.
Hughes recommends shredding financial statements, tax returns, medical bills, photographs, credit applications, insurance records, checks, employment applications, and credit card receipts.
“We greatly appreciate the community donation of gifts for hospitalized children,” Chad Whelan, CEO of Banner University Medicine, said. “The generosity demonstrated through the donation of gifts truly brightens the spirit of families experiencing difficult times.”
