Verity Credit Union is hosting our annual community Shred-a-Thon on Saturday, July 14th 2012 from 10 am – 2pm at our Lynnwood, Beacon Hill and Auburn branch locations. Everyone is invited. Bring your sensitive documents (old checks, pay stubs, documents no longer needed that contain sensitive information, etc). Shred-It, Verity’s Shred-a-Thon partner, will shred your documents on site as you watch.

Suggested Donation

A minimum $10 monetary donation is suggested (or nonperishable food items). Please consider an additional donation if you plan to shred more than the equivalent of 6 grocery size bags of documents. This much needed community service is designed to benefit you and help fill the pantries of our local food banks. 100% of your contribution will go directly to the food banks.

Shred locations:

  • Alderwod Branch, 18530 33rd Avenue West, Lynnwood WA, 98037 (Alderwood Plaza near Red Robin & Ross Dress for Less)
  • Beacon Hill Branch, 1660 South Columbia Way, Seattle WA, 98108 (on the campus of the VA Puget Sound Health Care Center)
  • Auburn Branch, 1424 Supermall Way, Auburn WA, 98001 (next to Men's Wearhouse, near Burger King & Elephant Car Wash)

Questions? Please contact me at 206.361.5398 or via email, vivianv@veritycu.com.

Until next time, V2

thank you for the question. we can only accept paper documents since the shred trucks are not equipped to shred other types of material.

Will you be doing this again next year? If so, have you scheduled the day yet? I did this one other time and it was a great event/service. I must have missed it this year. Don't want to miss it next year. Would like to put it on my calendar.
