United's Shred Day at Southington Branch Supports Connecticut Children's
Bank to Donate $1 for Every Pound of Paper Shredded – Up to $1,000
United Bank’s recent “Shred Day” at their Southington Branch not only provided customers and local residents the opportunity to shred and safely dispose of their personal and sensitive financial information, but the day will lead to the Bank donating $1,000 to the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center in Hartford.
United’s “Shred Day” took place on Saturday, May 3 from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm in the parking lot of its Southington Branch located at 158 North Main Street. Katherine Pawlak, Personal Banking Officer at the Southington Branch, and the Branch Team organized the event.
102.9 DRC-FM and Iron Mountain, a worldwide provider of records management, data management solutions and information destruction services, partnered with United to provide the complimentary shredding service for customers and local residents. 102.9 DRC-FM helped promote the event and on-air personality, Floyd Wright, was onsite that morning with giveaways and entertainment.
For every one pound of paper shredded that day, United Bank will donate $1 – up to $1,000 – to the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center during its fundraising marathon in November. This is United’s third year contributing to this fundraising effort. The Branch took in 6,300 pounds of paper that morning.
United Bank occasionally holds “Shred Days” throughout the year at different locations in Connecticut and Massachusetts. The purpose is to give customers and local residents the opportunity to safely shred personal, confidential and financial documents they no longer need.
