State Rep. Tim Ozinga to Host Free Document Shredding & Food Drive Event

State Representative Tim Ozinga (R – Mokena) invites residents of the 37th Legislative House District to take advantage of a free document-shredding event on Saturday, March 26th at the New Lenox Park District at 701 W Haven Ave in New Lenox. The truck will be available from 9 AM to 11 AM. 

“Tax season provides many challenges for taxpayers to safely dispose of sensitive documents. The consequences of losing or misplacing these documents can be drastic. I am happy to host this event to help constituents safely and properly dispose of these documents,” Rep. Ozinga stated. 

Rep. Ozinga is partnering with a local business, PROSHRED, to provide the truck. Drivers are to follow signs and bring their vehicles up to the truck, where volunteers will be on-hand to unload documents. The shredding truck will accept no more than two boxes of shreddable documents from each vehicle. It cannot take electronics for recycling or disposal. 

Rep. Ozinga continued, “continuously rising prices presents challenges to all of us, but especially those who are already struggling. I am encouraging my fellow neighbors and participants in the free shredding event to bring non-perishable food and other items to donate.” The New Lenox Township Pantry is the primary beneficiary of the drive. The pantry accepts traditional foods like non-perishables, canned pasta, canned fruit, granola bars, soups, peanut butter, jelly, and condiments.
