Senior Center Trustee, Jim Connolly, empties a box of paper at the last Paper Shred. The next shred is Saturday, Oct. 21st 9 - noon at the circle at Lafayette School, Chatham.

De-clutter and dispose of your unwanted paper and documents safely and securely at a fall Community Shred fundraiser to be held on Saturday, October 21, 2017 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. in the Lafayette School parking lot, 221 Lafayette Avenue, Chatham Township.  All proceeds will benefit Senior Services of the Chathams. The service is open to the public and participants need not be Chatham residents.

"The shred service is an eco-friendly way to purge documents in a confidential way," says Pam Mansfield, executive director. "Paper shredding can reduce the risk of identity theft, a troublesome problem of the modern age."

Residents from Chatham and other surrounding towns are invited to participate, with a suggested donation of $10 per small/medium cardboard box and $5 per brown paper grocery bag.  Paper clips and staples do not need to be removed.  Newspapers, magazines and paperback books will be accepted in addition to paper documents.
