Day 102: Shred it Bethesda!

Let's Shred Together

On April 15 & 16th, Mid-Atlantic Federal Credit Credit Union is offering a FREE paper shredding event in Bethesda.   They are inviting anyone to come on by their office located at 4831 Cordell Ave. (near Woodmont)and bring all your old files, statements and documents for FREE on-site shredding (I wonder if they have enough capacity for all of my stuff???).  The shredding will be done on-site, so in case you’re one of those who is really concerned about privacy or identity theft, you can watch the shredder tear up every last slip of paper as it is chewed up and spit out.

And this is not just some boring paper shredding event.  No, not at all.  Mid-Atlantic Federal Credit Union will also be providing free food, drinks and giveaways on Saturday from 11 Am to 1 PM. Plus, Chili Amar will be there from Mix 107.3 playing todays’ best hits!  So you can eat, drink and rock out while watching that paper shred!

Here are the official shredding times

  • Friday, April 15th 11:30 AM – 1 :30 PM and 4 PM – 6 PM
  • Saturday, April 16th – 10 AM – 1 PM

4831 Cordell Ave

By the way, I recently met with a representative from Mid-Atlantic Federal Credit Union and I must say, I was impressed with their organization.  If you are a resident of Montgomery County, you qualify to join.  Credit unions are member driven organizations and typically offer the lowest fee banking options around.  They offer both business and personal banking options.  If you have some time to stop by while your paper is shredding, check out what they have to offer.  I was very pleased to hear that you can access ATM’s at any CVS Pharmacy or 7-11 surcharge free with your credit union account!  Nice!

So Bethesda, do some spring cleaning!  When you head out to mail your tax returns on April 15th (or April 16th), stop by Mid-Atlantic Federal Credit Union with all your old documents and shred ’em!   ~Amy
