VIDEO: Document Shredding and Food Collection Event Draws Large Crowd in 48th District

On Saturday, cars were lined up at the Duane and Lorraine Street Metra lot in Glen Ellyn a full 45 minutes before a document shredding and food collection event was set to begin in State Representative Peter Breen's (R-Lombard) 48th District, and the flow of traffic did not stop until noon when the event ended and the shred truck was full.

A total of 16,000 pounds of paper was shredded in a shred truck underwritten by AT&T, and more than 800 individual non-perishable food items and personal hygiene items were collected for the Glen Ellyn Food Pantry. "It was an incredible event," said Breen. "Our volunteers unloaded boxes and bags of documents from a steady stream of cars all morning, and the outpouring of support of the Glen Ellyn Food Pantry was phenomenal!"
