Just a reminder that the community Shred-A-Thon is Saturday, July 13 at three Verity Credit Union locations.

The Shred-A-Thon is finally here!

Verity Credit Union’s community Shred-A-Thon is Saturday, July 13, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Alderwood, Auburn and Beacon Hill branches. Shred-It, a document shredding company, will be bringing shredding trucks to each location, and you can watch your un-needed documents get shredded and disposed of securely.

The annual event also serves as a fundraiser for local food banks. Verity suggests donating $10, or non-perishable food, in exchange for the shredding service. And if you’re bringing a truck-load of documents to dispose of, maybe consider giving a larger donation.

And for anyone wanting some free food, come down to the Alderwood branch for a member-appreciation BBQ. Our staff lounge is currently filled with hotdogs, sodas, juice and chips, waiting for members to come visit tomorrow.

I hope to see everyone tomorrow!

Hi, I’m Kira. I joined Verity in early 2012 after a seven-year stint as a newspaper reporter. While I never thought my career path would veer off in this direction, I am loving my time at Verity. I recently moved from being a member services representative at the Alderwood Branch to being the marketing coordinator for the credit union.

I’m originally from Texas, but I have lived all over the country and the world, including Boston, Massachusetts, Anchorage, Alaska and Sydney, Australia. But in all my travels, the Pacific Northwest is the only place that has felt like home.

When not at work, I am usually home with playing with my son, husband, dog and three cats. During the rare times I don’t have a to-do list to plow through (and it’s not raining too hard), I can be found digging in the vegetable garden, training for a half-marathon, or grilling in the backyard.
