The 10th annual Big Shred on Saturday, June 25 raised almost $10,000 for a new veterans housing program at Homeward Bound of Marin. A sponsorship from Valley Oak Wealth Management allowed more than 500 people to take advantage of shredding services and contribute to Homeward Bound in lieu of paying fees for shredding. All donations will help create 24 small apartments in Novato for veterans transitioning out of homelessness. A groundbreaking celebration to kick off construction is expected at the end of this year.
“Last year, Homeward Bound of Marin served 51 veterans. This new program can make it possible for Marin County to be one of the first in California to end homelessness for former service members,” said Maura Thurman, communications coordinator at Homeward Bound of Marin.
