SATURDAY, MAY 11, 2013, 9 A.M. – 12 NOON

This year's Grateful Shred was a great success!

    Local residents took advantage of the FCBCC's GRATEFUL SHRED VI — a shredding party — held on Saturday, May 11, 9 a.m.-12 noon at the Clara Barton Community Center, 7425 MacArthur Blvd., Cabin John, MD. This was a wonderful opportunity to avoid fraud or identity theft — and clean out your home files. Our next Shred will be held next May 2014 and details will be posted later. In the meantime, we thought you'd like to see some photos from this year's Grateful Shred.

    Ample parking and helpers...

    to unload your boxes for shredding

    and empty them to be moved to the shredder.

    Donations are tax deductible

    and are used to support the Center's activities

    for children, families and seniors alike.

    A little fun along the way...

    fascinated watch of the shredder in action

    ...some of the people who help make the event possible.

    For future reference, ALL-SHRED, a noted firm in Frederick, MD, provides a mobile shredding truck — inside it is a cross-cut shredder that cuts your pages into tiny paper chips.  (The shreds are then baled and sent to paper plants to be recycled.) We ask that you donate $5 per box of paper (that means a one-cubic-foot storage box or the equivalent).  Don’t have quite a box full?  You can have a half-box or the equivalent shredded for $3 or a quarter-box for $2.  The event is sponsored by the Friends of the Clara Barton Community Center.  For more information, call the Center at 240-777-4910.

    Note:  All-Shred has no problem shredding (along with home office papers), paper clips, staples, rubber bands, folders, binder clips, hanging folders (even with metal strips), and labels.  But they don’t do newspapers, 3-ring binders, cardboard, heavy plastic, heavy metals, boxes, trash, floppy disks, or CDs.
