Community Shredding Event Helps Send Kids to Business School
Funds Raised Will Support Junior Achievement BizTown Program

BALTIMORE, MD ( May 3, 2011) - Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler will join Incred-A-Shred as the company presents a donation to Junior Achievement of Central Maryland on Thursday, May 5th at 10:00 a.m., 10711 Red Run Boulevard, Suite 110 in Owings Mills.  The donation will cover the costs to send two Maryland schools to JA BizTown in Owings Mills.  Our Lady of Grace School in Baltimore County and Boonsboro Elementary School in Washington County will benefit from the donation.  Plenty of students, teachers and BizTown instructors will be available to show and tell how the BizTown program helps teach school kids about finance and business.

Last month, the Office of Attorney General and Incred-A-Shred co-hosted a free shredding event to help fight identity theft and to support Junior Achievement and its mission.  The five-hour shred event raised a total of $3500 in on-site donations from the public and paper recycling proceeds.  More than 1700 people from the Baltimore community helped make the event a successful fight against identity theft while benefitting Junior Achievement of Central Maryland.
