Shoney's KidCare Photo ID Program Aug. 22-24

Posted: 08/18/2014
August 18, 2014 - Now in its 20th year, Shoney's Restaurants KidCare Photo ID events will take place in the Greater Knoxville area for one weekend only, August 22-24, 2014, 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 theirfamily, and have the opportunity to visit with Shoney Bear.

Over the past 19 years, the program has successfully provided more than 37,000 children with IDs. Community organizations involved are the Knoxville Police Department & Safety City, East Tennessee Children's Hospital, The Knoxville News-Sentinel, Walgreens, Star 102.1, WVLT Volunteer TV 8, and The Optimist Club of Knoxville.

The 2014 KidCare Photo ID event dates are this weekend only:

- Friday, August 22 at Safety City 2:00 PM-7:00 PM
- Saturday, August 23 at Cedar Bluff Elementary School 11:00 AM -5:00 PM
- Sunday, August 24 at Foothills Mall in Maryville 12:00 PM-6:00 PM

Shoney's of Knoxville, Inc., is an independently owned and operated franchise with 20 Shoney's Restaurants in 10 East Tennessee counties.
