Employees from Heartland Bank in Princeton helped area residents unload boxes of documents in the side parking lot at Princeton Public Library in a well-attended Shred Day event Saturday. The papers were then fed into a mobile shredding unit housed in a truck operated by Confidential On-Site Paper Shredding. The idea behind the event is to help people protect themselves from identity theft by shredding personal documents. The bank’s next area Shred Day will be from 8 to 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 21, at the Peru Heartland Bank at 925 Shooting Park Road.
