We Florida Financial Celebrates Earth Month With Shred-a-tree/plant-a-tree Events

Residents are encouraged to join the efforts to support the community and the environment

We Florida Financial, a cooperatively owned, not-for-profit credit union, will celebrate Earth Month by hosting two Shred-a-Tree/Plant-a-Tree events benefiting One Tree Planted and partaking in the beach cleanup efforts for The 5th Annual SOS Ocean Conservation Day.

Members and locals are welcome to bring their sensitive documents to be securely shredded and disposed of by a professional shredding company. Upon completion of the shred events, the total weight of the papers shredded will be tallied. We Florida Financial will donate one dollar for every two pounds of shredded paper to One Tree Planted, a nonprofit organization focused on global reforestation, which plants one tree for every dollar donated.

The Shred-a-Tree/Plant-a-Tree events will take place:

Friday, April 22, 2022 | 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the We Florida Financial Branches. Locations include:

  • Pembroke Pines Branch – 9560 Pines Blvd. in Pembroke Pines, FL 33024

Sunday, April 24, 2022 | 9 a.m. – at The 5th Annual SOS Ocean Conservation Day

Upon arrival, guests can look for the ‘We Florida Financial’ tent, and a team of dedicated staff will assist in securely shredding documents.
