Community Shredder Days are Back!

Hometown Bank has scheduled another round of its popular Community Shredder Days, beginning on April 18 according to Vice President of Communication, Joe Klimavich.

On Community Shredder Days, a Shred-it truck with a built-in industrial paper shredder is parked in the bank’s parking lot for an entire morning. Local residents are encouraged to bring up to 3 boxes of confidential documents to be shred on-site as they look on.

The first Community Shredder Day is scheduled from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, April 18 at the newest Hometown Bank office at 9 Sack Boulevard, in Leominster. A second Community Shredder Day will be held on Saturday, April 25 at the bank’s offices at 4 Gore Road, in Webster. On May 2, a Shred-it truck will be at the Auburn office located in the Heritage Plaza at 569 Southbridge Street on 9 a.m. to noon in conjunction with the Auburn Chamber of Commerce’s annual town-wide cleanup day.

“Identity theft is a growing concern,” said Klimavich, “so we want to do what we can to assist local residents in properly shredding and disposing of the kinds of confidential documents that can accumulate around the house in a safe and permanent way.”

Hometown Bank Community Shredder Days are open to all residents of local communities as a public service. You do not need to be a Hometown Bank customer to participate.

Hometown Bank is a $400 million mutual bank with offices in Athol, Auburn, Leominster, Oxford, South Lancaster, Sturbridge and Webster.
