Press Release

Community Shred Event

A Community Shred Event will take place at the 9/11 Park on Saturday, November 7, from 10 A.M. until Noon. This is located on the east side of Broadway, at the train trestle, across from Peter’s Diner.

Sponsored by the Bay Village Civic Association, a $10 donation will enable you to see three bags or boxes of personal papers shred on site by Secure Shred. The company asks that clients stay in their cars while awaiting employees who will take papers. Please wear a mask when giving your donation to a BVCA volunteer. During the pandemic, many have been cleaning out closets and offices. This is a wonderful way to ensure your papers with private information are securely destroyed while giving back to the community.

The donations are used to help fund community scholarships and projects. In the past, the BVCA has donated a pergola at the Dog Park, Village entranceway signs, anniversary flags, etc. Many scholarships have been awarded annually to high achieving and community-minded Amityville Memorial H.S. students.
