Senior Services of the Chathams announces a Community Shred fundraiser to be held on Saturday, May 4th from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the parking lot of the Chatham train station, Fairmount Ave.

“This is the perfect solution to get rid of personal documents in a confidential way,” says Pam Mansfield, Executive Director.  The public is invited to participate, and the cost is $5 per standard box or brown paper grocery bag.  Newspapers, magazines and paperback books will be accepted, too.  Money raised from the event will be used to fund wellness programs at the Senior Center.

PSEG is the corporate sponsor of the event.

Senior Services of the Chathams began as an outreach project of Interfaith Council of Churches and was quickly spun off into an independent 501 c 3 organization.  The twenty-two-year-old agency runs a transportation service for those that don’t drive, support groups and an information and referral service for a variety of geriatric issues including home health care needs, changes in Medicare, when to stop driving, assisted living, and government services.
