KNOXVILLE (WATE) — Shoney’s Restaurants and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) are partnering to help families in East Tennessee.
Families can receive identification for their child to share with authorities if their kid is ever reported missing. Volunteers will create a medical profile for each child which will include a color photograph, fingerprints, height, weight and date of birth. The “Seven Rules for Safety” and a 24-hour NCMEC hotline number will also be given.
There will be a Shoney’s KidCare Photo ID event on August 5 at West Town Mall in Knoxville. The event will be held at the amphitheater in front of JCPenney from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
There are also events at Foothills Mall Center Stage from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday, August 6 and at the Knox County Expo Center’s Back to School Bash on Monday, August 7 from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
