This year marks the 15th anniversary of the devastating flood that came through Carter County in 1998. Today Carter County Bank employees volunteered to get their hands dirty in order to bring new life to the Victims’ Memorial located next to The Community Park in beautiful Roan Mountain, Tennessee.
Saturday, April 27, was a record breaking year for Carter County Bank’s Annual Free Community Shred Day with a total of almost 20,000 pounds of paper professionally shredded and recycled. The Village branch, located at 800 Broad Street in Elizabethton, was busy with normal bank customers as well as local residents who brought trucks, boxes and garbage bags full of documents containing their personal information and watched it be shredded by Cintas, an on-site document shredding company. “We started this event several years ago and it continues to grow each year. This is the first year we brought two trucks to handle the shredding. We are happy that we invested in two trucks because we filled both of them before the day was over,” said Rebecca White, Marketing Director for Carter County Bank. “Offering a Free Shred Day gives our citizens a proactive way to guard against Identity Theft,” said White. “A large percentage of households don’t have their own personal paper shredder or even have access to one. We are happy to be able to provide this annual shred service to our customers and community” said Dale Fair, President of Carter County Bank. Shredding your sensitive documents is just one step in the process of protecting your identity. Here are just a few additional steps you should take to ward off thieves. — Check your credit report and bank statements regularly for suspicious activity. It’s better to catch a problem early. — Protect your Social Security number. Give out only when absolutely necessary. — Shred any papers that contain sensitive personal information including bank statements, medical records, tax records, insurance forms, credit card offers, etc. At home, use a shredder that is cross-cut or diamond-cut. In-home shredder prices range from $30 to $100. Higher end shredders will destroy CDs [...]

Bring your old bills, check stubs, health information, tax documents, financial statements, floppy disks, CDs, legal papers, invoices, or any other confidential information that has accumulated over the years. Participants do not need to remove staples, paper clips, folders, or rubber bands from documents. Hope to see you there! This free service is provided to consumers only please.

Carter County Bank has donated $3,000 to the Second Harvest Food Bank Mobile Food Pantry in Carter County. Second Harvest Community Relations Director Kathy Smith said the donation would help cover the operations of the mobile food pantry, which delivers food to locations in Stoney Creek, Watauga, Valley Forge, Hampton and Roan Mountain, along with drop-off locations at Lynnwood and Lynnridge apartments and First United Methodist Church. At each site, food boxes are distributed to 40 to 60 people. The funds raised for the donation were collected from the Community Pride T-shirt sales through the bank. A total of 750 shirts were printed for the communities of Hampton, Happy Valley, Poga, Roan Mountain, Stoney Creek and Elizabethton with slogans referring specially to that area of Carter County. Carter County Bank public relations officer Rebecca White said the bank was pleased with the results of the sales. The bank sold 612 of the 750 T-shirts for a total donation of $2,727 after expenses. Carter County Bank rounded the amount up for a total of $3000 to sponsor the Second Harvest Food Bank Mobile Pantry in Carter County. “We are glad that we are able to help the agency,” White said. “We would not have been able to make this donation without the help of PEP Screen, who printed the T-shirts at such a reduced cost.” “Part of our strategic vision is that no one goes hungry because of lack of access to food,” Smith said. “The mobile food pantry delivers to locations that would otherwise not have access to food banks. This donation will help with purchasing the food for the boxes and paying for fuel to make the deliveries.” The bank will run another Community Pride campaign next summer. The communities of Keenburg and Siam have already been picked to be [...]
