To keep everyone safe in 2020 we did things a little differently. We hosted contact-free Shred Days!
Members brought their shredding to our Barrington, Des Plaines and Morton Grove offices between 1 pm and 4 pm on designated dates during the end of summer. We unloaded car trunks full of shredding and accepted food donations to benefit local organizations.
More than 617 members dropped off their shredding totaling 31,996 pounds and our generous members donated non-perishable food that benefited the Self Help Closet & Food Pantry of Des Plaines, the Niles Township Food Pantry and the Barrington Food Pantry. 2020 ended up to be quite a success with trunk loads full of donated food and hundreds in monetary donations.
We are especially looking forward to 2021 Shred Days on the following dates from 1-4 pm!
