Part of adulting for me is having a pile of things I need to get rid of, but am terrified to throw in the regular garbage. Old bank statements, credit cards offers, all those handwritten gypsy curses...

Luckily, this Saturday (September 10), the South Plains Credit Unions Chapter and WesTex Document are teaming up to help you and me get rid of unwanted documents and to benefit a great cause in the process.

They'll be out at 8010 Frankfurt in the United Supermarkets parking lot. All they are asking is that you make the donation of your choice to Make-a-Wish while you're out there. All donations get you an entry to win tickets to the Texas Tech vs. Kansas game. Raider Red will make an appearance, and there will be food and other prizes as well.
