Malagari to host shred event this weekend

LANSDALE, Sept. 1 – State Rep. Steve Malagari, D-Montgomery, invites constituents to his free shred event on Saturday, Sept. 5.

The shred event will take place from 10 a.m. to noon at Indian Crest Middle School, 139 Harleysville Pike, Souderton. Attendees are welcome to bring up to three boxes or bags of personal documents to be securely shredded on site.

“Shredding personal documents is one of the best ways to protect yourself from identity theft, because someone with bad intentions may only need one piece of paper with your name and address on it to start wreaking havoc,” Malagari said. “I encourage everyone to bring old credit card applications, bank statements, tax forms or any documents containing sensitive information to be securely disposed of at my free event.”

Malagari asks that attendees enter at the Harleysville Pike entrance of the school. They will be directed to the truck and exit at the Fourth Street entrance once they are done shredding. This is to avoid traffic issues and potentially long wait times.
