More Photos from the Grateful Shred!

    FCBCC's GRATEFUL SHRED is a shredding party that is held on a Saturday in May or June, 9 a.m.-12 noon, at the Clara Barton Community Center, 7425 MacArthur Blvd., Cabin John, MD. This is a wonderful opportunity to avoid fraud or identity theft ó and clean out your home files. Here are some photos from past Grateful Shreds.

    You can bring papers by truck...

    or shopping cart...

    or dolly pushed by your child.

    We will empty your boxes into a container...

    we have plenty of cheerful helpers...

    and we'll flatten your boxes for you
    (although we can't shred those).

    When the container is full...

    we feed the papers to the shredder.

    Afterwards you can make a contribution to
    help support the programs at the Center.

    For future reference, ALL-SHRED, a noted firm in Frederick, MD, provides a mobile shredding truck ó 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).  Donít 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 donít do newspapers, 3-ring binders, cardboard, heavy plastic, heavy metals, boxes, trash, floppy disks, or CDs.
