The Coal Creek Parkway QFC will host a community shred-a-thon from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. June 1 to benefit Seattle Children’s Hospital.

Residents are encouraged to bring unwanted personal documents for shredding to help curb identity theft, which is the fastest growing form of consumer fraud.

It will cost $5 to shred a grocery bag full of documents, or $10 for an archive box of materials. All of the proceeds will benefit Seattle Children’s Hospital.

Last year, the hospital provided $113.7 million in uncompensated care to families in Washington, Alaska, Montana and Idaho.

The Newcastle QFC is at 6940 Coal Creek Parkway.
