A Document Shred and Drug Take Back Day will be held from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Oct. 12 at Flat Rock Town Center.
TRIAD Henderson County and Flat Rock Village will have a shred truck for county residents to provide free document shredding (past tax records, bank records, medical documents, etc.).
The event will also have a Drug Take Back component (outdated and unwanted prescription and over the counter drugs) supported by the Sheriff’s Office and Hope Rx of Henderson County.
The day’s mission is to help the community and especially the elderly better protect themselves from scams, frauds, identity theft, abuse and theft.
Community groups and businesses that support TRIAD are Henderson County Sheriff’s Office, Hope Rx, Hendersonville Police Department, DSS-Adult Protection Services, Council on Aging, Land of Sky Regional Council, WNC Y, Wealth Managers, Senior Service Providers & Non-Profits, Banks, Insurance Companies, In-Home Care, and Assisted Living Facilities.
Triad’s mission is to reduce criminal victimization of older citizens by working to decrease unwarranted fear of crime and improve safety and quality of life for all seniors in our community.
Speakers are also available from TRIAD to speak to your organization/community group on how to protect yourself from abuse, fraud and scams. Email inquiries to Jill Hart at [email protected] for more information on programs.
