Community shred event set Saturday

Monday, June 7, 2021

Confidential document destruction and paper recycling will be available when the Putnam County Board of Realtors host a community shred event.

This public service is scheduled for Saturday, June 12 from 8:30-10:30 a.m. at the Putnam County Fairgrounds, U.S. 231 North, Greencastle, and is offered free thanks to a sponsorship by Abstract and Title of Putnam County.

Persons may bring any papers they want securely destroyed such as tax returns, bank statements, credit cards and more.

Paper clips, small binder clips and staples can be left in place. However, papers should be removed from plastic binders.

The shredding will be done on-site and all shredded paper will then be recycled.

The process will work like this: Simply drive up and items will be unloaded by volunteers. The public will be asked to remain in their vehicles to maintain social distancing and facilitate safe traffic flow.

Contributions to the Putnam County Board of Realtor Scholarship Fund are appreciated. Donations will be accepted at time of service and will be included in the Share the Dream program, receiving a $0.50-on-the-dollar matching contribution.

Businesses are welcome to attend with a 10-box maximum and a $5 per box donation. Additional boxes may be accepted depending on the capacity of the shred truck.

Persons may call 720-2091 for more information.

Share the Dream is provided through the Putnam County Community Foundation.

Participating endowments will be eligible for matching opportunity.

Qualifying participants must receive at least 10 donations (from different donors) of at least $25 each during the contest period (June 1-July 31).

All donations will be matched $0.50 to every dollar.

Grant prizes will be added to endowments.

The endowment with the greatest number of unique donors (with a minimum $25 gift) will receive an additional $1,000 prize.

The endowment that raises the most amount of money will receive an additional $1,000 prize.
