Devour a hot dog, slurp down a soft drink and rip apart your confidential papers in one shot.

The Habitat for Humanity ReStore is sponsoring “Shredding for a Cause” from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, May 20, at 975 Chestnut St. in Gainesville.

The nonprofit is partnering with American Security Shredding to eliminate old and new confidential papers residents no longer want lying around the house. A minimum suggested donation is $20 for two boxes of shredding. All proceeds will benefit the Habitat for Humanity of Hall County.

After residents drop off the limit of two boxes for shredding, they can partake of the hot dogs, chips and drinks available at the ReStore. Then the visitors may check out the deep discounts on items inside the store.

The Gainesville fire and police departments will have an engine and patrol car on site for children to see and explore.

This will also be the final sales day at the current ReStore. The following week the store will close and move to its new location on Murphy Boulevard. Volunteers are needed to help move.
