Shred Day 2020:
The Shred Day Event was a success. In addition to shredding important documents for our members and the surrounding communities, together we raised over $2,200 in cash donation and donated over 700 pounds of food to Food Bank of the Rockies. Well done, everyone! Colorado Credit Union and Food Bank of the Rockies gives many thanks to all the generous donations.
