FAIRFIELD, Conn. - Rocco & Associates Wealth Management, Inc. (roccoandassociates.com) has announced it will be offering a Shredding Day to kick off spring on May 17th from 10:00 A.M. - 1:00 P.M, at their office at 1248 Post Rd, Fairfield CT. In addition, the firm will be encouraging all taking advantage of this FREE event to also donate suits, shirts and other professional clothing items for both men and women to be distributed to local veterans through the Bethel, CT based organization, Save a Suit (saveasuit.org). Save a Suits' mission is to assist our veterans preparing to enter back into the workforce during the job interview process.
Not a day does not go by when we don't read about another security attack that targets both individuals and businesses that compromise personally identifiable information. These attacks can lead to fraud, bank accounts being drained and countless hours trying to rectify the breach with credit card companies and other professional service organizations you conduct business with. A main source of these types of breaches is not properly disposing of personal information. This could include but is not limited to, credit card statements, financial records, estate planning documents, as well as other sensitive mail that contains personal information.
"At Rocco & Associates, our firm takes safeguarding all of our client's personal/confidential information very seriously. All sensitive documents are stored under lock and key and properly disposed of and shredded on a regular basis," said Charlie Rocco, President & CEO. "In addition, we recently became 100% paperless, so all client information is securely stored electronically with multiple security layers as well as backups in multiple locations."
While planning events for 2019, we decided that are clients and others in the community should be able to dispose of their personal documents with the same confidence that we do," said Eric Johnson COO, "and we figured the springtime was a perfect time of year to offer this value added service while people are cleaning out after a long winter."
"Getting personal documents disposed of properly is critical to prevent security breaches, but equally important is our firm's quest to constantly be striving to give back to our community as well. This is why we decided to pair this year's shredding day with a clothing drive to help veterans get back into the workforce," said Charlie Rocco. The firm's hope is that while you are gathering up documents to be shredded, to also have a look inside those closets to donate any unwanted professional clothing at the same time.
Although the event itself will run on May 17th, documents and clothing can be dropped off anytime from 9-5 both Wednesday May, 15th & Thursday, May 16th at the office from 9-5 leading up to shredding day.
