PARMA, Ohio — The City of Parma is hosting a community shredding and food drive event for residents in August.

From 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, August 8th, residents can safely get rid of documents while helping those in need at Parma Senior High School.

In a press release, the city of Parma asks that people show proof of residency, like a driver’s license or a utility bill to participate.

Residents are being asked to make a donation to the All Faiths Pantry when they drop off their items to be shredded. 

“A $20 donation provides almost two grocery bags towards the 450 households we serve each month,” said Felicia Martinez, executive director of the Parma-based All Faiths Pantry.  

The Pantry helps low-income seniors and those with limited mobility by providing free groceries to those in need.

If you would like to donate items to the pantry they are in need of the following:

  • paper towels
  • facial tissues
  • toilet paper
  • paper napkins
  • cleaning supplies
  • bar soap
  • hand soap or hand sanitizer.

There is no limit on the amount of documents residents can bring to be shredded.
