Destroy Documents and Declutter at Chelsea Groton Shred Days
Bank to host three free, secure, and safe shred and recycling events this Spring
Many have spent a lot of time at home over the last year, and likely had an opportunity to go through old bank statements, bills, tax documents and other sensitive records. If you haven’t yet been able to securely shred this paperwork, Chelsea Groton Bank is providing FREE secure document shredding services this spring, to protect confidential information and avoid identity theft.
“The number of people who are victimized because sensitive data is stolen continues to rise,” said Lori Dufficy, EVP, Chief Experience & Engagement Officer at Chelsea Groton Bank. “Although criminals are increasingly using cyber-attacks to gain access to personal information online, we encourage everyone to properly dispose of hard copy documents that can literally put their financial future in the wrong hands.”
To make the process quick, convenient and safe, three separate Shred Days will be available at Chelsea Groton Bank branch parking lots:
Saturday, April 24, 2021 from 9am – 12pm at the Center Groton Branch, 1319 Gold Star Highway
Saturday, May 8, 2021 from 9am – 12pm at the North Stonington Branch, 391 Norwich Westerly Road
Saturday, May 29, 2021 from 9am – 12pm at the Norwich-Westside Branch, 444 West Main Street
These complimentary services are available to members and non-members of the Bank. Simply bring up to three file-sized boxes of documents to any of the events and bank representatives will ensure everything is destroyed. Once shredded, the paper will be recycled.
Chelsea Groton will also be collecting non-perishable food items for the Gemma E. Moran United Way/Labor Food Bank. Items in need are canned and dry goods, that are not in glass containers, in the following categories: tuna, meats, stew, vegetables, fruits, pasta, rice, instant potatoes, dried beans, peanut butter, and baby food.
In order to protect the health and safety of all present, please wear a mask and practice social distancing. The staff assisting with shredding will be wearing masks and gloves.
