Subway & FHP Promote ID Kits for Kids

Myers.

FHP helped promote the use of child I.D. kits through radio, television, and newspapers to spread the message on the importance of parents having identification information for their children in case of an emergency. National statistics show that every forty seconds a child is lost or missing.

Child I.D. kits were provided by Subway to participants at the Boys and Girls Club of Fort Myers at no cost to the families, and additional kits were made available to parents and kids in Lee, Charlotte, Hendry, Collier, and Glades Counties at participating Subways. Thank you Subway and FHP for making Florida’s kids safer.
