— The Adirondack Community Action Program (ACAP) was the beneficiary of some food donations during Ticonderoga Federal Credit Union’s Credit Union Week celebrations.

During Shredfest, an event held as part of Credit Union Week, which included three member appreciation barbecues and a carnival-themed member appreciation event, the free paper shredding event aimed at increasing public awareness of identity theft prevention produced over 5600 lbs. of shredded paper, resulting in a $443.10 donation to be split among three area food pantries, including ACAP. The public was invited to bring their personally identifying documents to shred on site in a mobile shredding truck. Non-perishable food donations were accepted in exchange for free paper-shredding and divided among three area food pantries.
