Williams invites residents to free June 8 shred event

THORNDALE, May 20 – State Rep. Dan Williams, D-Chester, is inviting residents to his free shred event on Saturday, June 8.

The shred event will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. (or until the trucks are filled) at Williams’ district office at 3496 E. Lincoln Highway, Thorndale. Attendees are welcome to bring up to two bankers boxes 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 on your life,” Williams 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.”

More information is available by contacting Williams’ office at 484-200-8256.
