HARVARD – Harvard Savings Bank is preparing for its seventh annual free Community Shred Day from 10 a.m. to noon April 6 at Crosby Elementary School, 401 Hereley Drive, Harvard.
Community members are encouraged to bring boxes of papers to be shredded in a large on-site destruction truck. Although this event is free, Harvard Savings Bank is requesting that community members bring a nonperishable food item to be donated to the Harvard Food Pantry.
There is a limit of two boxes per person and should contain paper only – no plastic, metal, vinyl or garbage.
“It’s exciting that we’ve been able to provide this service for seven years now and it keeps growing. Every year Americans lose billions of dollars to fraud. As a community service, Harvard Savings Bank helping the community to take action and protect themselves,” said Duffy Seyller, president of Harvard Savings Bank.
Duffy said identity-theft prevention information and handouts will be available during shredding hours.
