"At Comerica, we are committed to building strong and sustainable communities, offering Shred Day DFW is another opportunity for us to raise expectations of what a bank can be in the communities where we live and serve," said Andrew Raines, Comerica Bank Retail Regional Director. "Our longstanding partnership with Iron Mountain and the North Texas Food Bank continues to raise awareness about the importance of preventing identity theft, protecting the environment and fighting hunger in the DFW area."
The North Texas Food Bank will be on-site to collect monetary donations as well as nonperishable food items. The first 500 guests who donate to the food bank will receive a complimentary gift.
"We are so grateful for the support of companies like Comerica Bank and Iron Mountain that recognize the growing issue of hunger and look for ways to contribute to organizations addressing this complex problem," said Erica Yaeger, North Texas Food Bank Chief External Affairs Officer. "Since 2011, more than 516,000 nutritious meals have been collected at Shred Day DFW for our neighbors facing hunger.

All paper from Shred Day DFW 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.
