Destroy Documents and Declutter at Chelsea Groton Community Shred Days

Chelsea Groton Bank is providing FREE secure document shredding services this fall, 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 Chelsea Groton-sponsored Shred Days are being offered in the parking lots of local libraries:

  • Saturday, September 25, 2021 from 10am – 1pm at the Public Library of New London, 63 Huntington Street, New London
  • Saturday, October 2, 2021 from 9am – 12pm at the Sprague Public Library, 76 Main Street, Baltic
  • Saturday, October 9, 2021 from 10am – 1pm at the Mystic & Noank Library, 40 Library Street, Mystic


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.
