State Senator Martin J. Golden will host simultaneous free shredding events, this Saturday, April 26 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., at both of his district offices: 7408 Fifth Avenue in Bay Ridge, and 3604 Quentin Road in Marine Park. Those attending should bring as many personal documents as they wish to shred.
A press release issued by Golden’s office states that, “Recent reports indicate that identity theft affects over 9 million Americans every year, is the fastest growing crime in America, and is the most reported consumer fraud complaint.” To that end, Golden is partnering with the community in protecting residents against identity theft.
“We all have a pile of papers in our house that we hope to one day get a chance to shred,” said Golden. “This is a great opportunity to stop by my office and get rid of those forms, bank statements, receipts and more in a safe way. Shred those papers so to make sure you have taken every precaution against the crime of identity theft.”
Golden introduced legislation (S. 6551-A) that would require credit card companies to issue New York State residents cards enabled with smart chip technology. Additionally, Golden has sponsored S.6826, which would increase the penalties for various levels of identity theft.

In conjunction with the American-Italian Cancer Foundation’s (AICF) Free Mobile Mammography Program, State Senator Marty Golden will host free mammography screenings outside of his district office, 3604 Quentin Road, this Friday, November 22 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Staffed completely by women, the mammography screenings take about 30 minutes to complete inside the 37-foot mobile mammography van.
The AICF’s Free Mobile Mammography Program aims to break down the barriers to breast cancer screening, which results in many underserved women losing their lives to breast cancer due to advanced disease at diagnosis.
Women interested in appointments must be over 40 years of age and have not had a mammogram in the past year. Results will be sent to you and/or your doctor within 10 business days. Uninsured women will be covered by the AICF’s funding.
An appointment, which is necessary, can be made by calling (718) 238-6044.
