Free Kids' ID photos available at Health Fair
The Woodinville Towne Center merchants are sponsoring Project Kid Care Photo ID as part of a national effort to provide parents with personal safety ID's of their children in the event that their child is ever missing.
From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. this Saturday, October 19, parents can obtain free, standardized, high quality photographs of their children for their Kid Care ID booklet in which they can also record and maintain current vital statistics of their children. The booklets are included free of charge.
Project Kid Care, developed by Polaroid Corporation in conjunction with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), is a program designed to raise awareness of child safety and provide parents with an effective tool to aid law enforecement authorities in search of a missing child.
"Everyone has pictures of their children, but most parents don't have a suitable photograph if their child becomes lost or missing," said Bob Milton, president of the Woodinville Towne Merchants' Associaton. "It is important to have a recent, unobstructed head-and-shoulder photograph. The picture should be stored in a safe place with vital statistics of the child at the time the photograph is taken. Our association will continue to offer this service at least once a year."
