It's a goal to keep Missouri children safe. A group of trying to reach that goal through a free child ID program.
Volunteers of the Masonic Children's Foundation gathered at Carl Junction's performing arts center to gather vital information from children. The group urges parents to keep their child's history in case of an emergency.
"Since the program has been indoctrinated, there have been eight missing children who had the card. They were all rescued. One child had the program done one day, and two days later who picked up and was found briefly thereafter," says MoChip organizer Dale Roller.
Organizers say a child's information should be updated every two years.
