Essex Savings Bank Sponsored Free Shredding Event in May

Submitted by Elizabeth Kuhns.

On May 8, 2021, Essex Savings Bank’s Old Lyme Branch held its first ever free shred event
combined with a food drive to support the local Shoreline Soup Kitchen and Food Pantry. The event was open to both the public and businesses alike to provide a safe and secure way to dispose of sensitive documents. Approximately 6,000 pounds of materials were shredded at the free event!

In addition to the success of the shred portion of the event, the food drive was also highly
productive. Thanks to the generosity of those that participated, the branch collected 248 pounds of canned and non-perishable food along cash donations totaling nearly $1,000!

The event was supported in part by State Police Trooper Matt Weber, Old Lyme Police, DEEP Cadets and Old Lyme Rangers that provided many of the donated items.

Essex Savings Bank is a FDIC insured, state chartered, mutual savings bank established in 1851. The Bank serves the Connecticut River Valley and shoreline with six offices in Essex (2), Chester, Madison, Old Lyme and Old Saybrook providing a full complement of personal and business banking. Financial, estate, insurance and retirement planning are offered throughout the state by the Bank’s Trust Division, Essex Trust and wholly-owned subsidiary, Essex Financial Services, Inc
