United Way's Shred Day Helps 7 Nonprofit Organizations Shred 400 Boxes of Documents

“Having this service to safely and securely dispose of sensitive membership data is invaluable as we, at the Rye YMCA, head towards a safer and secure electronic approach,” explained John Grieco, the Director of Membership Operation at the Rye YMCA.
