Benefit will be back when it’s safe to shred | Letter to the editor

To the editor:

The Bainbridge Kiwanis Club and Columbia Bank’s annual shredding event has been postponed due to COVID-19.

Always scheduled for the second Saturday after the tax deadline, this year’s SHREDFEST has been rescheduled after the new tax deadline of July 15 to Saturday, July 25, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Columbia Bank, 208 High School Road NE.

All funds raised by your tax-deductible donations will further Kiwanis’ mission: “Changing the world one child and one community at a time.”

This is a great opportunity for individuals and businesses to safely dispose of sensitive documents. Discourage identity theft by bringing your tax and other personal documents to be safely and securely shredded on the spot by a commercial shredder. In the spirit of environmental stewardship, 100 percent of shredded material is recycled. Donations are tax deductible and Kiwanis will have tax receipts on site for those who choose to donate. Donations help fund scholarships for graduating high school seniors. Kiwanis funded 12 scholarships in 2019.

To learn more about Kiwanis, visit our website, bikiwanis.org, or join us at one of our weekly meetings held every Wednesday at 7 a.m. at the Boys & Girls Club. Breakfast is on us!

For more information, call 206-201-3130.
