PITTSFIELD, Mass. — More than 10,250 pounds of personal papers were shredded at this year's Community Shred Day, an event held on May 11 and hosted by Greylock Federal Credit Union, in collaboration with Berkshire United Way, to benefit the United Way's local initiatives.
 
"Berkshire United Way is so grateful for the partnership we have with Greylock," said Community Engagement Manager Pam Knisley, of the United Way. "The support by Greylock and their employees of our volunteer projects, special events, like the annual Shred Day, and employee giving campaign, helps us continue the work that we do to ensure that our neighbors will thrive."
 
The event, which was open to the public, allowed community members to securely dispose of personal printed documents on-site at the United Way headquarters in Pittsfield. Through community donations, a total of $2,350 was raised for the organization.
 
"A special thanks goes out to Pittsfield Boy Scout Troop 8 for volunteering at the event this year," said Christina Walker, event co-organizer and Greylock Marketing Project Specialist. "They were a big help."
 
Jordyn Scace, also an event co-organizer and Greylock Web Content Manager, noted the outpouring of response.
 
"Our community loves this event, and so do we," said Scace. "We know how much our community looks forward to this event and we had a great day for it."
