  • Apr. 14 9-11AM
    Free Community Shredder Event

    McGuinness Funeral Home is helping you shred your sensitive documents so that they don't wind up in the wrong hands. Identity theft is one of the fastest growing non-violent crimes in America. Proper destruction of confidential documents is a critical step in ensuring that you and your family members do not become victims of identity theft. We are teaming up with ProShred Security to ensure that your personal and confidential materials are securely destroyed in a state-of-the-art mobile shredding vehicle. The following items can be shredded: all types and colors of paper; staples, clips, metal fasteners; report covers. The following items cannot be shredded: any large and chunky plastic or metal items; any electronics (these can't be accepted for security purposes-- there is no way to trace the electronic back to the original owner to complete the chain of custody), binders, or X-rays. So bring your confidential items to our upcoming Shredder Event, to be held at our Washington Twp. (Sewell) location--573 Egg Harbor Road! You can, with confidence, know that your materials will be securely destroyed! This event is free to the public! Limit: 5 boxes per turn in line. If you have any questions, please contact Elisha Elliott, Community Outreach Director, Aftercare Coordinator, and Bereavement Counselor at 856-582-3800.

A Letter to My
Community Family,

Perhaps it was the way a Dad hugged his child after they released a butterfly into our garden. Or maybe it was when a wife with tears in her eyes kissed a white balloon before she let it soar towards heaven. Or it could have been the breathtaking display of patriotism that our local Boy and Girl Scout troops created on our lawn honoring the lives lost on September 11th. Whatever glimpses of strength and hope we witness, they are the reasons we embrace our community and give back to those who so graciously support us.

The McGuinness family’s purpose is to make a lasting, positive difference in the lives of our guests. We are committed to providing excellence in all we do. Here are just a few ways we exceed your expectations:

  • Building relationships - Our dedication to local youth programs and senior care services is seen in our sponsorship of sports teams, civic organizations and recreational activities for all ages.
  • Bringing comfort - You can count on us to listen when you need to be heard, to give you the resources you need, and to give you the assurance that you are not alone.
  • Bridging hearts - Our remembrance events (Butterfly Release, Balloon Release, A Heart Full of Memories) let you know that although your heart may be heavy, we are here to help bear the weight and give you peace and hope.

The McGuinness family has served the community for more than 60 years, and providing personal caring service continues to be our top priority.
