On October 7, the Chicago Department of Health will have an influenza walk-in clinic at Alderman O’Connor’s office at 5850 N. Lincoln between 9am and 2pm. You can receive a free flu and pneumonia shot during those hours.
And the 40th Ward’s biannual paper shred and clothing drive event will be on Saturday, October 12, from 9am to 12pm in the driveway of the ward yard at 5333 N. Western Avenue.
You can bring documents to shred (binders and binder clips must be removed), but electronics will not be accepted. The Epilepsy Foundation will also be on hand to collect any clothing you may want to donate. They’ll also take linens and towels as well as clothing and accessories (shoes, belts, hats, bags).
Contact Alderman O’Connor’s office at 773-769-1140 with any questions about either of these events.
