Local JA to sponsor Ident-A-Kid at fair
Special to The Herald
The Yazoo City Junior Auxiliary will once again sponsor an Ident-A-Kid booth at the Yazoo County Fair this year.
The booth will be open to the public Oct. 17-22.
Free identification cards for children will be made and distributed at the booth.
What started in 1986 as a laminated Polaroid photo identification card with a messy ink fingerprint has evolved into a digital ID available in both traditional form and new in electronic form sent to a cell phone (called eKid-ID). Ident-A-Kid’s services are still as important today as they were 25 years ago because every day over 2,100 children are reported missing and only three percent of parents carry a current photo of their child with them.
