Free Child Safety I.D. Event Being Held in Irving on September 8th


Irving, Texas. September 6, 2012

In efforts to continue keeping our kids and community safe, New York Life Insurance Company is proud to sponsor a free Child Safety I.D. event in collaboration with Valley Ranch Association and Children's Dental Centre of Irving on Saturday, September 8, 2012.

Even though the City of Irving's crime rate is at an all time low we must continue to be proactive with the safety of our children. An estimated 800,000 children are reported missing each year - more than 2,000 children every day according to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children. For this reason, residents of Irving are encouraged to stop by the Valley Ranch Association office, 8830 N. MacArthur Blvd., Suite 101, Irving, TX 75063 on Saturday, September 8 between 9am-11am to receive a custom Child I.D.

In only 3 to 5 minutes, a Child I.D. card, free of charge, is printed for each child accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Child I.D. cards feature a child’s photo, fingerprints, contact information and other pertinent information needed by the police in case of an emergency.

No child’s information or pictures are electronically retained. All data is automatically erased upon printing of the Child I.D.

“New York Life Insurance Company is an active member in the community and is committed to helping protect families and encourage the safety of children,” said Alicia Maldonado, New York Life Company Hispanic Market Senior Associate.

“Valley Ranch Association is excited to be offering this free Child Safety I.D. event in collaboration with New York Life Insurance and Children’s Dental Centre of Irving. This event will provide parents a resourceful tool in the event of an emergency,” said Jessica Hughes, Valley Ranch Association Lifestyle Director.

“Our mission has always been to promote children's health, and we are excited to be a partner in our community to promote child safety as well,” said Dr. Reena Kuba, DDS, MS, the Centre's board certified pediatric dentist.
