MONROE, CT — Rain in the forecast sparked a decision to change the date for the Monroe Lions Club’s paper shredding and electronic equipment discarding fundraiser that was originally scheduled for this Saturday.

Instead, the event in the Rite Aid pharmacy parking lot, 435 Main Street in Monroe, will be held on May 5 from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.

This event gives participants the opportunity to rid themselves of all types of paper records (except spiral binders) and outdated computer and electronic equipment.

“The Monroe community will benefit from the funds raised, while cleaning their houses,” said Lions Club President Frank Bent.

Requested donations to the nonprofit are $15 per box of paper — any size. The donation sought for cell phones is $10. Donations for electronic equipment starts at $10 and greater amounts depend on type and size.

Proceeds benefit the Monroe Lions Club’s scholarship fund for graduating Masuk High School seniors. For information, call Frank Bent at 203-650-5632.
