FLORHAM PARK —  Cheshire Home’s is holding their annual paper shredding event on Saturday, April 13 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 Noon. Residents are invited to bring boxed or bagged papers to the parking lot of 9 Ridgedale Avenue. Event is held rain or shine. Donations will support young adults with spinal cord injuries and neurological impairments as they work toward attaining independence.

The community is invited to deliver papers to Cheshire Home, where they will be loaded onto the truck and shredded on-site by Morris Plains-based Security Shredding.

“Cheshire’s Annual Paper Shred Day brings the community out in large numbers,” Executive Director George Zeitler remarked. “While the service we provide benefits our participants, their generous contributions in turn support our residents as they rehabilitate.”

A $5.00 donation per standard-size box will support Cheshire Home’s services, which include 24-hour nursing and personal care, physical therapy, occupational therapy, transportation, recreation and specialized training.

The facility is New Jersey’s leading provider of unique residential and rehabilitative services to young adults with spinal cord injuries or neurological impairments, and the only stand-alone facility of its kind in the state. Its unique programs are sustained through charity events, individual donations and grant funding.
