"At Comerica, we are committed to building strong and sustainable communities by providing resources that promote financial education as well as donating to nonprofit organizations to help maximize positive impact," said Jason Baker, Comerica Bank's Houston Market President. "Shred Day raises awareness about identity theft prevention and the importance of recycling while providing support to those facing hunger in our community."
All paper from Shred Day Houston will be turned into pulp and recycled after being securely destroyed.
The public, including small business owners and nonprofits, is invited to bring personal or business paper documents to be securely destroyed and recycled.
