MyCHIP Program in Orange, Massachusetts on June 19, 2010

On Saturday, June 19, Walmart will host a Masonic Youth Child Identification Program (MyCHIP) from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Masons from North Quabbin Lodge will be on hand to provide families with tools to help law enforcement authorities find and identify a lost or missing child.

From the MyCHIP web site:

The Masons of Massachusetts, partnering with the Massachusetts Crime Prevention Officers Association and the Massachusetts Dental Association, donate MYCHIP resources to make this service available to the public. None of the information is copied and all the identifying materials are given to the child's family.

Our Free Program Provides The Following Materials

VIDEOTAPE: A brief videotaped interview that can be quickly distributed to the media in order to reach a huge audience.

FINGERPRINTING: Fingerprinting is a well-known means of identification. Resourceful parents keep fingerprints available should the need arise.

TOOTHPRINTS: A tooth print bite impression is quick and easy. Teeth, like fingerprints are unique. A dental imprint gives both accurate and important information for identification purposes.

CHEEK SWAB: A Q-tip is gently rubbed on the inside of a child’s cheek to gather DNA material.
