Medford Sunrise to collect donations at shred event

The rotary club is collecting backpacks and toiletries for Joseph House.

Medford Sunrise Rotary Club is hosting a community shred event on Saturday, Nov. 14 at Freedom Park in Medford.

From 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., Global Document Services LLC will shred documents, CDs and DVDs. The event is open to residents and businesses. 

Medford Sunrise will also be collecting backpacks and toiletry donations for Joseph House, a homeless shelter in Camden, at the event. Donations will also be accepted at Keller Williams Realty at 620 Stokes Road. 

The Medford Sunrise Rotary Club first met in March of 2010, and was chartered on October 18, 2010 with 22 members. The club meets on Wednesday mornings at 7:15am at the Medport Diner on Route 70 in Medford, New Jersey. Meetings are a combination of congenial fellowship, planning and brainstorming service projects locally and worldwide, and interesting speakers – and of course breakfast! The club regularly participates in preparing meals for families staying at the Ronald McDonald House, collecting needed supplies and goodies for service people overseas, and raising money and sending volunteers overseas to aid in the Rotary-led fight to eliminate Polio worldwide.

Medford Sunrise Rotary is responsible for planning and organizing the Annual Dickens Festival, a fun-filled family event that transforms Historic Main Street in Medford each December. Medford Sunrise also produces and distributes the Medford Community Calendar, an invaluable resource for Medford residents and local businesses.
