SCARBOROUGH, Maine — Saco and Biddeford Savings Institution will host a free paper shredding event 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 13, at its branch in Scarborough, 41 Gorham Road. The event is free and open to the public.
Community members and businesses are encouraged to join the fight against identity theft by bringing up to two boxes of documents — cancelled checks, old bills and invoices, medical records, etc. — for safe and confidential shredding. Shredding will be provided by Without A Trace.
Attendees are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items, as SBSI staff will be on hand to collect food and cash donations for the Scarborough Food Pantry. Bring a cash or food donation and receive a free gift — while supplies last. Nickles, the SBSI mascot, will also be there 10 a.m.-noon.
