- In an effort to promote identity protection, Rep. Ann Flood (R-Northampton) is hosting a shredder event on Saturday, April ,2 from 10 a.m. to noon at Wind Gap Middle School, located at 1620 Teels Road in Pen Argyl.
“Identity theft is one of the fastest growing crimes in our state and our nation,” Flood said. “We all need to be proactive in protecting our identities and shredding documents with personal identifying information is an important step.”
Residents of the 138th District are invited to dispose of documents with sensitive information, such as Social Security, bank account or credit card numbers. There is no charge for using the service provided by Richter Mobile Shredding of Souderton.
Participants are reminded that only four boxes or bags of paper per household are allowed.
In an effort to protect the health and safety of everyone involved, this will be a contact-free event. Participants are asked to stay in their vehicles while staff unloads the items.
The event is open to residents only; no businesses, please.
