Free Child ID Kits Available at Local Subways

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash-- Subway and the Yakima Police Department are teaming up to protect kids with Child ID Kits. These kits can be found at your local Subway restaurants.

Inside is a place for finger prints, teeth impressions and a picture. All information helpful for police should your child go missing.

Dozens of kids today, along with their teachers gathered at Summitview Elementary to learn more about the ID Kits, handed out each year by Subway. 

Thursday's assembly included a Halloween safety talk with Officer Haubric of the Yakima Police Department. All the students will be sent home with a kit to fill out with their parents.

"I think they had a really good time. I think Officer Haubric did a nice job of covering some of the safety tips that all kids need to know. And I think they'll be excited when they get home and open up their kits," said Crystal McDonald, principal Summitview Elementary.

This annual ID kit campaign helps thousands of parents. Kits are always distributed around Halloween and they get grabbed-up quick. 

Subway restaurants all across Eastern Washington are participating in the child ID kit program.  You can pick up your free kit at any Subway in Yakima.
