Manasquan Savings Bank hosted a community Shred Day and Food Drive, on Saturday, April 21st at their Wall office and headquarters located at 2221 Landmark Place in Wall Township, NJ. “We think it’s an important service to help protect consumers with a safe and secure way to dispose of sensitive documents,” explains President, Peter Brown.
“Since 100% of the materials shredded are recycled, this was a great way for the community to celebrate Earth Day,” explains Wall Township Office Manager, Kristine Zulewski. Earth Day, held annually on April 22, is honored around the world to increase awareness and appreciation of the Earth’s natural environment. “I love that we can provide people a way to safely dispose of their personal documents in an environmentally friendly way,” adds Zulewski.
Over 50 participants came prepared to safely destroy their unwanted personal documents in a mobile document-destruction truck supplied by Planet Shred. Approximately 2 tons worth of material was deposited for shredding. “Our customers were impressed and thankful for the shredding service we provided. They found it easy and convenient to just drive up and drop off their documents,” explains Susan Bottini, the Assistant Branch Manager of the Wall Township office.
Another impressive number that day was the amount of food collected for the Food Bank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties. Approximately 200 pounds of food were donated with Manasquan Savings Bank making a $1 per pound matching donation. “Our customers were more than happy to donate food items to such a respected organization in their community,” added Bottini.
What started out as a single yearly event at Manasquan Savings Bank Headquarters, has now expanded into a multi-annual event held at various locations for customer convenience.
