Hometown Bank to Host Community Shredder Days
Hometown Bank has scheduled a series of Community Shredder Days at each of its branches throughout central Massachusetts, beginning on April 20, 2013 and continuing through the middle of June, according to Vice President of Communication, Joe Klimavich.
On Community Shredder Days, a Shred-it truck with a built-in industrial paper shredder is parked in the bank’s parking lot for an entire morning. Local residents are encouraged to bring up to 3 boxes of confidential documents to be shred on-site as they observe.
The first Community Shredder Day is scheduled from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, April 20 at the Hometown Bank office at 331 Main Street, Route 131, in Sturbridge. Two additional Community Shredder Days will be held on Saturday, April 27 at the bank’s offices at 90 Exchange Street in Athol and 131 Main Street in South Lancaster. In May, Shred-it trucks will be at the Auburn office located in the Heritage Plaza at 569 Southbridge Street on May 4, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in conjunction with the Auburn Chamber of Commerce’s bi-annual town-wide clean-up day, and on May 11, from 9 a.m. to noon at the Oxford office located at 31 Sutton Avenue.
One additional Community Shredder Day will be held at the bank’s new Webster office located at 5 Gore Road sometime after that branch has opened in early June.
“Identity theft is a growing concern,” said Klimavich, “so we want to do what we can to assist local residents in properly shredding and disposing of the kinds of confidential documents that can accumulate around the house in a safe and permanent way.”
“Last year, we held just two of these events and they were so well attended that some Customers travelled some distance to participate and the back doors of the truck were bulging as they left our parking lot,” Klimavich recalled. “This year, we’re responding to popular demand with an event at each of our six locations, and we’re giving people lots of advance notice in the hopes that more local residents can participate.”
Hometown Bank Community Shredder Days are offered to residents of local communities as a public service. You do not need to be a Hometown Bank Customer to participate.
