Citizens State Bank To Host Free Community Shred Day, April 28 in Lena

Lena, Illinois – Citizens State Bank is celebrating Community Banking Month and Money Smart Week (April 21 – 28) with a free Community Shred Day at its Lena location. Shred Days are a great way to reduce the risk of identity theft and to help the environment through recycling unwanted documents.

We are proud to offer this service free of charge as a way to serve our communities.”

The public is invited to bring paper documents to be destroyed (maximum 100 lbs. per person) from 9 – 11 a.m. Saturday, April 28 to the Citizens State Bank Lena location – 102 W. Main Street.
