During the summer of 2011 COMSTAR Federal Credit Union wanted to do something to help and give back to the community. We decided on a community shred day! We helped the community by shredding personal records as a protection of identify theft. We gave back to the community by collecting canned foods from participants. It was such a great time! We had Rita’s Italian ice on hand, giving out free samples and a live radio broadcast announcing the event. We collected over 10 boxes of canned food which was donated to our local Frederick County, MD food bank. It was such a great success to the point were we have scheduled two shred events in 2012 (April 14 and 21, 2012).
