McClinton co-sponsoring community shredding event June 18

HARRISBURG, June 15 – State Rep. Joanna McClinton, D-Phila./Delaware, is co-sponsoring a free community shredding event with state Sen. Anthony H. Williams this Saturday, June 18.

The shredding event will be held from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the Cobbs Creek Shopping Center, 58th and Baltimore streets, Philadelphia. The shredder will be set up next to AutoZone.

Local residents are encouraged to bring old financial, tax and medical records, as well as other sensitive papers, for proper disposal. Those taking advantage of the shredding opportunity are asked to please remove all paper clips and binders before dropping the papers off.

"I am so excited to bring a much-needed service to my neighbors," McClinton said. "Whether it is junk mail, credit card offers or paperwork you no longer need, we all can benefit by properly disposing of these papers."

In addition to the shredding opportunity, McClinton's staff will be available to assist with applying for various state programs, such as CHIP, the health insurance program for children; Medicaid; or the state's Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program.
