May 5, 2021

Salisbury Bank is continuing its initiative to fight against identity theft while building community goodwill by sponsoring a Free Shred Event and Food Drive.

“Identity theft continues to be a concern for individuals and businesses. Shredding documents with personal information has become an important step in protecting yourself against this concern,” stated Amy Raymond, Executive Vice President and Chief Retail Banking Officer. “Salisbury Bank is pleased to kick-off the season at our Dover Plains branch to help you responsibly and safely dispose of sensitive documents.”

Community Shred “Drive-thru” Day is open to anyone, and will be held at the Dover Plains branch - 5 Dover Village Plaza, Dover Plains, New York, on Saturday, May 22nd from 9:00 a.m. to Noon.

For the safety of all participants and volunteers the Bank has changed its Shred Days format to "Drive-thru", and established the following guidelines:

  • Limit 4 bags / boxes per car (paper only; no binders)
  • Must wear a facial cover / mask
  • You will be guided to drop-off your boxes at the designated area to be shredded by Bank staff
  • Stay in your car until you reach the drop-off point
  • If you feel unwell, please stay home

Please consider bringing a non-perishable food donation as well - local pantries need a variety of donations including: canned goods, cereals, macaroni and cheese, cake mix, peanut butter, mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard, and tomato sauce. Household necessities such as paper towels, diapers, shampoo, and soap are also appreciated.

These services are brought to you by Salisbury Bank, as a way of enriching the communities it serves. All shredded paper will be recycled and all collected items will be donated directly to local food pantries.
