Old tax forms, account statements, medical records. Sure, we all have these items boxed up somewhere, but what do you do with sensitive personal information you no longer need?
Washington State Employees Credit Union (WSECU) will hold its annual Community Shred and Share Day on Saturday, July 27th, at its Everett branch between 10:00 am and 1:00 pm.
WSECU members, as well as our friends who live in the community, are invited to bring up to three file-size boxes – weighing up to 150 pounds – of old documents containing personal or sensitive information for secure shredding.
“One way to reduce the risk of becoming a victim of identity theft is the proper disposal of sensitive documents, and this is exactly what our annual event offers,” said Ann Flannigan, vice president of public relations.
She went on to say, “But this day is simply not all about shredding. It’s also about sharing, and our event is a great way for people to give back to the community.”
In addition to offering this free shredding opportunity, WSECU’s Everett branch has teamed up with Volunteers of America to provide support to those who are in need.
Participants taking advantage of Community Shred and Share Day are encouraged to donate non-perishable food items.
WSECU’s Everett branch is located at 404 128th St SW, Everett, WA 98204.
