On Saturday, August 27, State Senator Craig Wilcox (R-McHenry) and State Representative Steve Reick (R-Harvard) are hosting a free shred event and food drive in the large lot behind Rep. Reick’s Woodstock office.
Document Shredding & Food Collection Drive
Saturday, August 27
9:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon
1072 Lake Avenue, Woodstock
“The shred truck provides residents with a safe and secure way to dispose of sensitive documents like old bank statements, tax documents, and receipts. We’re combining the shred event with a food collection drive that will benefit many families in need right here in the immediate area,” Sen. Wilcox said. “I’m looking forward to a large turnout at this popular annual event.”
Participants are asked to follow traffic signs and remain in their vehicles. Event volunteers will unload cars. Each vehicle may drop off up to two banker box-sized boxes or bags of documents to be shredded and the event ends at noon or when the truck is full. Documents will NOT be shredded on-site but will be collected in sealed bins and taken to AMS Store & Shred in Lake in the Hills for safe destruction. Each vehicle will receive an official certificate of destruction as items are dropped off.
Nonperishable food items will be accepted and distributed to local food pantries.
“It’s so important to properly dispose of sensitive documents to protect our personal information and identities,” said Rep. Reick. “I’m happy to provide residents with an opportunity to safely dispose of their documents and give back to communities in need with our food drive.”
