Members and community were encouraged to shred their personal documents for free and to enjoy fun family activities at both locations.  In Alexandria, students from the T.C. Williams High School Academy of Finance (“AOF”) supported the event by helping members shred their documents.  They held a fundraiser to benefit the Academy and played fun games with children.  In Harrisonburg, local police officers from the Harrisonburg City Police Department provided child fingerprinting kits and educated the public on bike safety.   

“The community’s support for our shred days far surpassed our expectations,” said Charlotte Cash, President/CEO.  “This is one event that we all look forward to every year.”
