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. One way you can ensure that thieves don’t gain access to information that could be confidential is shredding documents with personal information,” stated Amy Raymond, Executive Vice President and Chief Retail Banking Officer at Salisbury Bank.

Community Shred “Drive-thru” Day is open to anyone, and will be held at the Lakeville branch - 5 Bissell Street, Lakeville, CT on Saturday, July 9th, from 9 AM to Noon.

Please consider bringing a non-perishable donation as well - local pantries need a variety of donations including: canned goods, powdered milk, whole-grain cereals, kitchen spices, macaroni and cheese, pancake/cake mix, peanut butter, condiments, pasta, granola/oatmeal, and tomato sauce. Household necessities such as paper towels, diapers, wipes, socks, feminine hygiene products, shampoo, and soap are also appreciated.

All shredded paper will be recycled and all collected items will be donated directly to local food pantries.
