Shred for Disaster

Folks can drop by with everything they wish to dispose of, have it shredded at no cost...

On Saturday, April 27, 2013, the American Red Cross Danville Chapter will partner with Prudential Hodrick Realty to offer the public a unique opportunity to safely and securely dispose of papers, forms, old tax returns and junk mail via a mobile shredding unit at three locations in the region.

Kevin Hodrick, event organizer commented, “From 10:00am to noon, a Keystone Mobile Shredding truck will be on hand at three of our business locations: 448 River Ave., Williamsport; 1100 W Market St., Lewisburg; and 321 Mill St., Danville. Hodrick continued, “Folks can drop by with everything they wish to dispose of, have it shredded at no cost and visit with American Red Cross volunteers who will discuss First Aid techniques and offer information about blood drives.”

Jennifer LoConte, Regional Communications Officer commented, “Not only is this the perfect time of year for disposing of unwanted paper that tends to build up in your home, it is also an opportunity to make your home safer.” LoConte continued, “Our Red Cross volunteers look forward to assisting the public and talking about First Aid.”
