Supporting community…corporate citizenship is alive and well at Verity! There are sooooo many good and worthy causes to support. We wish we could say “yes” to them all. Here are a few events that we recently supported:
Instruments of Change-A benefit for the West Seattle Food Bank
Pete Spalding, super star Indirect Lending Officer and West Seattle community humanitarian & advocate, and a few other Verity-ites, pose for a group photo.
Auburn Valley YMCA Healthy Kids Day
Verity’s Auburn branch was out in force in support of healthy kids. The annual event featured information and activities around being physically active, nutrition (samples too…yum, yum), raising financially healthy kids (yay Verity!) and sooooo much more.
Clothes for Kids
Clothes for Kids is a nonprofit organization in Lynnwood that provides school clothes for children of underprivileged families. Verity’s Alderwood branch donated an Italian themed wine basket that captured an impressive $130 during the live auction …. nice job Alderwood branch!
Until next time, V2
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
