Destroy Documents and Declutter at Chelsea Groton Community Shred Days

Bank to host two free, secure, and safe shred and recycling events this Spring
GROTON, Conn. –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, two separate Chelsea Groton-sponsored Shred Days are being offered in the parking lots of Bank branches:

  • Saturday, June 3, 2023 from 9am – 12pm at the Westside Branch, 444 West Main Street, Norwich
  • Saturday, June 17, 2023 from 9am – 12pm at the North Stonington Branch, 391 Norwich Westerly Road, North Stonington
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.
On June 3rd, local non-profit Easterseals Veteran Rally Point will be on hand to collect non-perishable food items for their food pantry.
On June 17th, Chelsea Groton will 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.
