Verity’s annual community Shred-a-Thon is on Saturday, July 14th, 10am – 2pm at our Lynnwood, Beacon Hill & Auburn branches.

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)

Until next time, V2

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

    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.
