Horizons North Credit Union Hosts 8th Annual FREE Community Shred Event

NORTHGLENN, CO (June 8, 2015) – Horizons North Credit Union will be hosting a free community Shred Event from 9:00 AM to Noon on June 13, 2015.  In addition to providing a valuable community service HNCU hopes to raise public awareness for the need to securely destroy confidential documents as a way to help prevent identify theft and fraud.  Additionally, there will be information available on-site about the steps community members can take to help prevent identity theft.
