DeLissio to host two April events for residents

Free shredding will be offered April 17, and 105th Town Hall will be held April 22

HARRISBURG, April 1 – State Rep. Pamela A. DeLissio is holding two events for residents of her district this month: a free shredding event, as well as her 105th Town Hall meeting.

Free shredding April 17

The free shred event will be held from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Saturday, April 17 at the Magisterial District Court parking lot, 925 Montgomery Ave., Narberth, PA 19072.

“Shredding is an environmentally friendly way for residents to dispose of documents they no longer need without compromising their personal information,” said DeLissio, D-Montgomery/Phila. “I’m pleased to be able to host this event to help residents of the 194th Legislative District protect themselves from identity theft.”

The event will be held rain or shine. Attendees must wear masks and practice social distancing. Shredding is done on-site with COVID-19 protocols in place, and all shredded paper will be recycled.

There is a limit of four grocery bags or banker boxes per household, and attendees will be asked to transport their materials from their vehicles to the bins for shredding. Common types of items for shredding include old credit card statements, credit card applications, bank and investment statements, canceled checks, income tax information, insurance and health records, and retirement or pension fund information.

Newspapers, magazines and journals will not be accepted. The event will end sooner than 11 a.m. if the truck is full.

105th Town Hall meeting April 22

Additionally, DeLissio will host her 105th Town Hall meeting virtually at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 22.

DeLissio will discuss the work of the House Children & Youth Committee. DeLissio is minority chair of that committee this session. Other topics will include a preliminary discussion on the status of legislation for adult use cannabis (AKA recreational marijuana), and updates will be provided on the COVID-19 vaccine and on mail-in ballots.

The meeting will be held over Zoom and will also be livestreamed on DeLissio’s Facebook pageTo participate through Zoom, those interested must register by 11 a.m. Thursday, April 22 using this link. Zoom login information will then be sent.

Anyone interested may also email RepDeLissio@pahouse.net and a registration link will be sent. Once someone is registered, the Zoom login information will be sent. 

“This will be my 13th town hall held virtually since the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak and mitigation efforts necessitated different means to communicate and provide information,” DeLissio said. “These town halls continue to draw new faces and familiar ones, and I’m pleased to be able to share important information and updates. Ongoing dialogue is a priority for me, and these virtual events have proven a successful way to keep in touch.”
