ROANOKE (WSLS 10) - Identity theft continues to be an issue for many. Beginning this month, and throughout the month of November, WSLS 10, Kodiak Shredding and Schewels are teaming up to help fight it.

Shredding is one easy way residents can help protect their identity from being stolen, and these events can save folks some money too!

Anything you bring to the designated locations will be shredded for free.
