Thank you to everyone who participated in Verity’s annual community Shred-a-Thon.  Your generous monetary and non-perishable food donations coupled with Verity’s team of dedicated employee volunteers raised $1,996 and 4 barrels of food for local area food banks:

  • Auburn Food Bank
  • Beacon Avenue Food Bank
  • Lynnwood Food Bank

Thank you for caring!  Enjoy a few fun shred day pix!

Vivian Valencia

Hi, my name is Vivian Valencia also known as “V2”. I’ve been with Verity since late 1999 and am currently serving as Director of Community Relations. My job involves increasing our Verity family of members, ensuring our corporate sponsorships are utilized to the fullest and working with our branch staff on community outreach. I LOVE my job, absolutely ADORE my colleagues, and life in general is pretty darn good. Almost every day I easily find something(s) to be grateful for ……. can you tell I’m a positive kinda’ gal?!?.

Here are a few fun facts: My favorite color is purple; I was shy as a kid (most would find this surprising); my secret wish is to learn to sing accapella (most wish I’d just learn already!); Anderson Cooper is my secret crush (well, my most recent secret crush); I love waking early in the morning to listen to the quiet; fudge brownies with walnuts and caramel are my friends!

See ya’ in the blogosphere! V2
