SARATOGA SPRINGS — Saratoga Financial Services would like to thank everyone who came out on Saturday, June 27 to join them for their ninth annual shred event.

This year they partnered with ConfiData, the Saratoga Business Journal, Fingerpaint and the Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce to make the event free for all community members to participate. 

The event had its largest turnout yet, bringing in more than 9,000 pounds of paper from the public to shred. All documents were securely destroyed at the event, and have since been baled and shipped to local paper mills to be recycled for reuse.

Saratoga Financial Services would also like to thank everyone for their generous donations to benefit the Act With Respect Always program. The local non-profit organization had its founder, Rich Johns, along with three student volunteers helping at the event. They raised $600, all of which is used to help spread the importance of respect in our schools, sports and lives.

Start a box to throw your old and unneeded documents in now and stay tuned for Saratoga Financial Services’ tenth annual Shred Event happening next spring of 2021.
