Commercial high-volume shredders, courtesy of Iron Mountain, will be on-site to shred your records. UFCU Asset Protection team members will also be available to answer your questions about identity theft or other fraud issues. And once you’ve dropped off your files, head across Clock Tower Dr to shop at Goodwill. Enjoy smart shopping and smart financial housekeeping all in one place.
