Today, July 25th, and tomorrow, July 26th, from 4-7PM in the Membership Lobby of the Snoqualmie Valley Y, New York Life agent, Jennifer Fly, will be on hand to provide free photo ID cards and fingerprinting to local children. No YMCA membership is required and organizers say it’s a great way to protect your kids.
Since 2006, New York Life has been providing this service throughout King County. Over the past three years they have ID’ed more than 3,000 local kids.
The free event is run by volunteer New York Life agents. The process includes creating a photo ID card and fingerprinting each child digitally – no ink required. Parents are asked to fill out an information sheet about their child as well, including allergies and other medical conditions. Then a CD with all the child’s information is given to parents. The CD also includes a safety folder on it with various child safety tips, including how to make your own DNA kit.
Event volunteer Jennifer Fly says that age is not limited at the event. In the past she said she performed the identification process on a 21-year-old, as fingerprints are not included with driving permits and licenses.
Again, stop by the Snoqualmie YMCA today or tomorrow between 4PM and 7PM for this free child ID event. You do NOT have to be a YMCA member. The event is open to any local family.
