October is National Cooperative Month and provides an opportunity for cooperatives to celebrate the benefits of cooperatives with their members and the community. As a special thank you to their members, Colorado Valley Telephone Cooperative teamed up with Fayette Electric Cooperative to host a special Shred Day on October 26.
PROSHRED, a document shredding firm, provided the on-site shredding truck to shred documents for FEC members in the morning and for CVTC customers in the afternoon.
“October being Cooperative Month and Cybersecurity Month, we wanted to use this opportunity to provide our customers a secure means to dispose of confidential documents. We are proud to partner with Fayette Electric Cooperative and provide this service to our members and the county,” said General Manager Kelly Allison.
“We always enjoy working with Colorado Valley Telephone Cooperative and Cooperative Month was a perfect time to team up with their employees to provide this valuable service to our members,” said General Manager Gary Don Nietsche.
