The Bainbridge Island Kiwanis Club will host its seventh annual ShredFest on Saturday, April 26.

The location will be the same as last year, at Columbia Bank on High School Road, across the street from Safeway. Hours are 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. There is no charge, but donations will be gladly accepted.

Organizers note that ShredFest comes at a convenient time, the second Saturday after Tax Day.

“Bring in your old tax information and personal paperwork in grocery bags or boxes, and Kiwanis members will unload your vehicle. The shredding truck will do the rest,” said Tom Watson, the longtime project officer for the event.

“This is an excellent way to protect you from identity theft,” he added.

All donations go to Kiwanis Club scholarships for high school seniors and other youth programs here on Bainbridge Island. In the last 10 years, Kiwanis has awarded more than $125,000 in scholarships.
