free document shredding on 12/4

Do you have a pile of private documents you no longer need but no shredder to securely dispose of them? Bring them to 19th Ward "SHRED-A-THON" next Saturday 12/4 from 9:00 a.m. to NOON at the parking lot for Chicago High School for Agricultural Sciences, 3857 W. 111th St.

Midway Document Destruction's mobile shredding truck will be in the parking lot, offering free paper shredding to 19th Ward residents. You can get rid of any old or unwanted papers containing sensitive information, and protect yourself against identity theft, which could be a problem if you put these documents into the trash.

Bring any documents you no longer need or want but that might contain personal or private information, and have them shredded on the spot, then taken away to be recycled. Examples include:

• Bank statements
• Outdated medical records
• Pay stubs
• Old bills and receipts
• Credit card offers
• Tax returns older than seven years

in memory of Gershwin 1997-2010

In the years he was with us, many people in the neighborhood got to know and love Gershwin the Old English sheepdog. No matter how beloved a dog is, he's not with us forever. Our neighborhood recently lost a wonderful furry friend to cancer and old age.

We'll miss you, Gershwin.
