Shred your secret stuff, help a good cause

It’s almost June. Your taxes are done, but that box marked “To Be Shredded” is still taking up space.

Bring it to the Community Shred event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the QFC parking lot at 4919 Evergreen Way, Everett.

Your identity-disclosing documents will be safely obliterated by Shred-It, and your donation will help support Seattle Children’s Hospital uncompensated care fund.

Seattle Children’s Hospital guild members will collect $5 for a grocery bagful and $10 per box.

Last year, Children’s provided $113.7 million in uncompensated care to families in Washington, Alaska, Montana and Idaho, according to the guild association.

Call 206-987-4876 for more information.
