Community Shred Days This Spring at Chelsea Groton

Chelsea Groton Bank is providing FREE secure document shredding services this Spring, to protect confidential information and avoid identity theft. New this year is the addition of a Shred Day that includes secure hard drive (HD) destruction.

“The number of people who are victimized because sensitive data is stolen continues to rise,” said Chrissy Caplet, VP, Operations & Security Manager 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 Chelsea Groton-sponsored Shred Days are being offered in the parking lots of Bank branches.

  • Saturday, April 27, 2024 from 9am – 12pm at the Groton Headquarters, 904 Poquonnock Road, Groton 
  • Saturday, May 11, 2024 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 hard drives to the event at Headquarters only) 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 during the Shred Days. Items in need are canned and dry goods that are not in glass containers, in the following categories: peanut butter and jelly, pasta and pasta sauce, cereal, mac and cheese, canned vegetables, soup, juice, rice, beans (canned or dry), and shelf-stable, quick-cook microwaveable meals in bowls, cups, or bags.
