The Child ID Program, provided by the Grand Lodge of Florida and supported and implemented by the Masonic Lodges of Madison and Greenville, will be at the Madison Pizza Hut, Tuesday, May 6.
The ID program is a free service offered by the Masons and is designed to help parents and law enforcement, in the unfortunate circumstances of a missing or abducted child. Digital images, video, fingerprinting and DNA samples (where possible) are taken of the child during the program and can be disseminated across the state and to the National Law Enforcement Network very quickly, increasing the probability the child will be found. Keeping your child’s information current is important and should be updated yearly.
Tuesday, the Masons will also be a holding a fundraiser, “Eat Pizza, Raise Dough” where the public can help raise money to purchase the newest technology needed for the ID program. The fundraiser will be all day, Dine In or Carry Out. Patrons who present a voucher at checkout will have their bill total counted towards the Child ID fundraiser, of which Pizza Hut will donate a percentage. To get a voucher, cut one out of this newspaper or email John Sirmon at firstname.lastname@example.org. A voucher must be present for the Masons to receive funds.
The child ID Program at Pizza Hut will start at 5 p.m. and run through 8 p.m. and is for children 0-18 years old. Identification of each child will take roughly 10 to 15 minutes, allowing approximately 30 children in the three-hour period. As part of the program, children under the age of 10 years old can eat for free with an adult (one child per adult) from 5:30-8:30 p.m.
The Madison Pizza Hut is located at 855 W. Base Street and is open from 11:15 a.m. until 10 p.m. Bring a voucher and enjoy a pizza while you help a worthy cause and be there from 5-8 p.m. for a free ID of your child, courtesy of the Masons.
