Arvest Bank and Shred-It will host a free Shred-A-Thon for the Mountain Home community Saturday, Oct. 5 from 10 a.m. – noon at the Arvest Bank branch located at 2619 Hwy. 62 East, by Walmart.

The complimentary shredding event provides a convenient opportunity for residents to drop off personal and confidential documents to be destroyed by Shred-It on-site, helping protect against the risk of identity theft. The shredded paper is recycled, supporting sustainability efforts in the North Central Arkansas.

There is no charge for the shredding services; however, donations to Gamma House, a transitional housing shelter for women and children, will be accepted. The support to Gamma House comes during Domestic Violence Awareness Month. 

“Identity theft continues to be an ongoing threat to consumers, so it’s important to take every measure possible for added security,” said Sally Gilbert, market president of Arvest Bank in Mountain Home. “We also are glad to provide an opportunity to lend support to Gamma House, a very important shelter and resource for women and children in our area. Every donation will help provide the services necessary to be able to return to living independently.”

Arvest will provide refreshments during the entire Shred-A-Thon event.

do I need to remove staples? Is there a limit to how much I can drop off?

Hi Linda, there is a limit of five boxes per household for shredding. If you can remove staples ahead of time that would help our team throughout the day.
