Over two days 40 children were enrolled in the program despite the crazy weather. The tent purchased with funds provided by West Gate proved to be vital in protecting the equipment during the frequent rain showers. Thanks to all of the members for your incredible support.
This event provides security for the many parents who attended. It is an important service provided to our community; as evidenced by the $70 in donations received to off-set the cost of running the program.
Masonic Ch.I.P. Background
The MasoniCh.I.P. program uses modern, police-approved techniques to create a child identification kit for the ones you love.
The kit collects photos, video, voice recordings, digital fingerprints, dental impressions, saliva swabs as well as traditional statistical information (height, weight, hair and eye colour, etc.).
This information is matched to work seamlessly with Ontario's law enforcement providers. By being so compatible, the critical indentifying information can be broadcast and shared more quickly than ever before to assist with the safe recovery of missing children.
The MasoniCh.I.P. program is brought exclusively to families by dedicated Masons and their volunteers, free of charge along with our sentiment that "We hope you never need to use it."
