LIMERICK PA – To help area residents protect themselves against identity theft, the Limerick Garden of Memories will host a free community shred day event April 29 (2017; Saturday) from 9 a.m. to noon at the cemetery park, 44 Swamp Pike. The park also will serve as a collection point for canned and packaged foods to be donated to the non-profit pantry of the Pottstown Cluster of Religious Communities, organizers said.
- This event has been added to The Post Publications calendar.
Shredding will occur rain or shine in partnership with Shred Nations. Residents and businesses alike are allowed to bring their unwanted confidential documents, including banking statements, old tax return files, medical records, credit card receipts, and other items – to be shredded on site. Machine paper, letterhead, white tablet paper, computer printout paper, laser print paper, and other miscellaneous papers and staples are acceptable.
However, VHS tapes, compact discs, and binders will not be accepted.
Visitors are asked to bring non-perishable food items to the event. The pantry is in special need of canned meats, canned pastas, peanut butter, jelly, and other items. Personal care products are also accepted (deodorant, toothpaste, and mouthwash, as examples), as well as baby items like diapers and wipes.
“We hope this event will offer a unique opportunity to community residents to shred unwanted documents securely,” Limerick Garden of Memories General Manager Bill Strock said. “Choosing to shred your confidential documents is a way for companies and homeowners alike to protect their information from potential risks of identity theft.”
