August 9, 2013 -
Shoney's Restaurants KidCare Photo ID events will take place in the Greater Knoxville area for one weekend only, August 23-25, 2013, in partnership with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC).
The events provide FREE KidCare Photo IDs for children, which enable parents to have information readily available for authorities in the event their child is ever reported missing. The IDs include a color photograph; fingerprints; important information such as: height, weight, and date of birth; a medical profile; the "Seven Rules for Safety;" and a 24-hour NCMEC hotline number. Each participant will also receive a child's "goody bag" filled with fun safety items for their family.
Over the past 17 years, the program has successfully provided more than 34,000 children with IDs. Community organizations involved are the Knoxville Police Department & Safety City, East Tennessee Children's Hospital, Safe Kids of Greater Knox, The Knoxville News-Sentinel, Walgreens, WVLT Volunteer TV 8, and The Optimist Club of Knoxville.
The 2013 KidCare Photo ID event dates are one weekend only:
Friday, August 23 at Safety City, from 2:00 PM-7:00 PM
Saturday, August 24 at Cedar Bluff Elementary School Cafeteria from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM
Sunday, August 25 at Foothills Mall from 12:00 PM to 6:00 PM
