LAKEWOOD, Colo., Nov. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Shred Nations held the second annual shred day for Denver Metro residents to shred their confidential documents securely on Veterans Day. The free shredding took place on Saturday, November 11, 2017 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM at 777 S. Wadsworth Blvd., Lakewood, CO, 80226.

Community members were encouraged to bring their unwanted confidential documents – including banking statements, old tax return files, medical records, credit card receipts, etc. – to be shredded securely onsite.

Voluntary donations and gift cards were accepted for the free shredding service with all donations going to The Home Front Cares. The Home Front Cares is a Veteran’s Charity that works to provide an emergency financial bridge and responsive support to Colorado’s military members, veterans and their families impacted by service to our Nation.

Community members showed up and shredded over 5,000 pounds of paper. The event also brought in over hundreds of donations to go directly to The Home Front Cares.

“The Home Front Cares is incredibly honored to be recipients of the proceeds from the shred event by Shred Nations! What a great way to show support for our Colorado Veterans,” said Eric Evans, Executive Director at The Home Front Cares.

Choosing to shred your confidential documents is a way for companies and homeowners alike to protect their information from potential risks of identity theft. The Shred Event was also a great way to support Colorado Veterans and honor Veterans Day at the same time.

“We are excited to partner with The Home Front Cares to help provide Colorado Veterans with financial assistance,” said Rand LeMarinel, Vice President of Marketing at Shred Nations. “We also look forward to providing a secure way for Denver Metro residents to shred their confidential documents in the future.”
