May 20 Community Shredding Event Announced

All Event Proceeds to Benefit Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital

BALTIMORE, MD (May 2012) - People looking to rid themselves of excess paper, old tax returns, bank records, bills or other documents (sensitive or otherwise) are in luck! Particularly timely just after tax season, a community shredding event will be held on Sunday, May 20, 2012 from 11:00 am - 3:00 pm in the parking lot of the DLA Piper located at 6225 Smith Avenue in the Mt. Washington community, atop the Johns Hopkins Complex.

Papers that contain sensitive information such as Social Security and bank account numbers will be shredded in front of the people who bring their material for the event. The charge is $10 per small to medium-size box. Shred-It will provide the shredding services and will be on-site with a shredding truck.

All proceeds from the event will benefit Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital. Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital offers state-of-the-art medical care in a family-friendly atmosphere. The hospital is dedicated to maximizing the health and independence of the children they serve. Their modern facilities offer inpatient and outpatient care for infants and children with complex medical needs.

The event is the idea of Robert & James Segal of Asset Management Concepts, Inc. of Baltimore. “We are thrilled to provide this service to individuals,” said James. “We are benefitting a terrific cause by teaming with Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital and also helping the environment by recycling what will hopefully be tons of paper waste.”

If the pilot project is successful, James Segal said future shredding events will be held.

The event is sponsored by: Asset Management Concepts, Inc.* and Gorfine, Schiller & Gardyn. Also providing support are Franklin Templeton; Pioneer Investments; Lord Abbett; Mainstay-NY Life; Fidelity Funds; Columbia Funds; and Prudential.

*Securities offered through LPL FINANCIAL, member FINRA/SIPC.

Shredding is the best way to recycle personal papers, help the environment, and protect oneself against identity theft. To keep this event safe and secure for everyone, individuals should NOT BRING these items: batteries, flammables, combustibles, electronic equipment (hard drives), media materials (DVDs, CDs, tapes), binders, hanging files.
