By  | 

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. Knoxville, Tenn. – Now in its 19th year, 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 provided by the Knoxville Police Department & Safety City; 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, and have the opportunity to visit with Shoney Bear.

Over the past 18 years, the program has successfully provided more than 35,500 children with IDs. Community organizations involved are the Knoxville Police Department & Safety City, East Tennessee Children’s Hospital, Safe Kids of Greater Knox, Knox County Schools, The Knoxville News-Sentinel, Walgreens, Star 102.1, WVLT Volunteer TV 8, and The Optimist Club of Knoxville. The 2013 KidCare Photo ID event dates are this weekend only:
