The United Way of Northwest Connecticut Day of Caring activity and community-wide Shred-It event will take place once again, according to Bill Egan, United Way of Northwest Connecticut Executive Director.
On Saturday, September 12, 2009, the United Way will host its third Northwest Connecticut Shred It Day from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 Noon. Co-chairing this event are Sandra B. Roberts and Sherie Power, Torrington District Manager, Kelly Services.
Roberts said, “Identity theft has become a major problem for all of us. Two years ago we contracted with Shred It, a national information shredding company, to provide trucks to accept personal documents from individuals for shredding. Last year’s event was even more popular than the previous year’s event.” This year, Shred-It trucks can be found at the following locations on Saturday, September 12, 2009: Litchfield County Association For Retarded Citizens, 314 Main Street, Torrington; Northwest Center for Family Service & Mental Health, 315 Main Street, Lakeville; Geer Adult Day Care Center at Geer Village in Canaan; and Winsted Area Child Care, 185 Prospect St., Winsted. Sponsors for the event are Ebersol & McCormick, LLC Attorneys At Law, Litchfield Bancorp, Northwest Community Bank and Salisbury Bank & Trust Company.
Volunteers at each location will be available to help people with their documents: Salisbury Bank & Trust employees in Lakeville and Canaan, Sandy Roberts and Sherie Power at LARC, and Winsted Area Child Care staff in Winsted.
“Items that people can bring to this United Way sponsored Shred It Day include bills, personal financial information no longer needed, and unwanted confidential documents,” said Roberts. “Each individual may bring their boxes of information to be shredded during this area-wide event. United Way volunteers will be on hand. This is yet another example of how the United Way can care for the people in Northwest Connecticut and help fulfill its mission of helping people in Northwest Connecticut care for one another.”
