WSECU annual Community Shred and Share Day coming to Federal Way July 27

Bring up to three file-size boxes of old documents containing personal or sensitive information for secure shredding during free event.

Old tax forms, account statements, medical records. Many have these items boxed up somewhere, but what do you do with sensitive personal information you no longer need?

WSECU has the answer.

WSECU will hold its annual Community Shred and Share Day on Saturday, July 27 at its Federal Way branch between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. The community is 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, in a press release. “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 Federal Way branch has teamed up with the Federal Way Multi-Service Center to provide support to those who are in need. Participants taking advantage of the event are encouraged to donate non-perishable food items.

WSECU’s Federal Way branch is located at 34024 Hoyt Road SW, Federal Way. To learn more, visit www.wsecu.org.
