Time to Shred Your Sensitive Documents and Help Neighbor-to-Neighbor

To The Editor:

Do you need a great reason to shred old personal documents and financial statements on April 26th? Here are a few: Earth Day, Spring cleaning, paper recycling, protection from identity theft. That’s probably enough, but here’s another – an opportunity to donate to our local food pantry.

* Cost to participate: Donate 1 can of Tuna or Fruit per box of paper, or $1/box

* Max: 8 boxes of paper per car, shredded on-site

* Shredding trucks will be at Island Beach parking lot April 26th, 9am to 1pm

* Paper shreds will be recycled

Spring cleaning doesn’t always include old files and dusty boxes of personal documents. Make it your 2014 mission. Collect what you no longer need and bring it to shredding day.

This event is multitasking at its best – Recycling paper to save trees which continuously provide clean air and Replenishing shelves at Neighbor-to-Neighbor’s food pantry.

Plus a bonus…drop off old cell phones you’ve had sitting in a drawer. We will send off to be recycled. Or drop old cell phones in recycling drop boxes around Town all year long at The First Bank of Greenwich in Cos Cob, Perrot Library in OG, Holly Hill E-waste in Byram, New England Cleaners in Greenwich, Greenwich Green & Clean at Pemberwick Park.
