You might have noticed that Verity Credit Union (WSB sponsor) is getting a jump on community involvement, even before opening their first branch in West Seattle. They’ve gotten involved with community events from the West Seattle Food Bank‘s Instruments of Change to Bike Everywhere Day. This morning, Verity hosted an event of its own, gathering West Seattle community leaders for a brainstorming breakfast at the Senior Center of West Seattle in The Junction.
Attendees were asked three questions:
*What makes West Seattle unique – how is it different from other neighborhoods?
*What role can Verity play in the community?
*What do you need from a bank that you’re not getting now?
Verity CEO John Zmolek participated, and presented Senior Center executive director Lyle Evans with a $1,200 donation for the center’s foot-care program:
Verity CU expects to be open in the former Radio Shack storefront on California south of Oregon before West Seattle Summer Fest (July 13-15). During the festival, they’re planning a variety of activities out front of what will by then be the newly opened branch.
