Pensacola, Fla. (WKRG) — Members of the KlaasKids Foundation are reminding people every child can be vulnerable. That’s why they held a Print-A-Thon a Blue Wahoos Stadium Saturday. The event was sponsored in part by Hill-Kelly Dodge Chrysler Jeep. The event promotes and educates parents about the importance of up-to-date pictures and fingerprints of their children. According to a news release, each child received digitized fingerprints, an updated photograph, pro-active child safety tips, a 12-point plan on what to do if your child disappears, and a DNA collection kit.
“I think the overriding message of our foundation is that every child in America is a vulnerable child. It’s important to take a preemptive approach to their safety. Talk to them about their safety. Have a plan in place. Have current photos available. Know exactly what you might do if you find yourself in a desperate and difficult situation,” said Mark Klaas with KlaasKids foundation.
