You can destroy your old personal documents and financial statements — and benefit the hungry and homeless while doing so.
Local State Farm insurance agents are hosting weekly document shredding events that benefit Share, the area’s leading provider of services to the neediest. Share operates several homeless shelters, housing subsidy programs, hot meal programs and more.
For a suggested donation of $10 per box, you can bring old tax returns, business records, bank statements and other personal documents to a participating State Farm agent, where they’ll get fed to the shredder. All donations will benefit Share.
The weekly fundraiser began on Jan. 20 and continues on selected Friday or Saturday mornings through April 20. There’s a different location every week; for example, from 10 a.m. to noon Friday, the site is 3136 N.E. Third Ave., Camas; from 10 a.m. to noon Friday, Feb. 3, it’s 6680 N.E. 159th Ave., Suite 100, Vancouver.
