We have set up a Masonic safety ID for the Boy Scouts on Saturday Oct 13th 2012 10 am to 4 pm. This is a huge event for the Scouts and 5000 kids are expected to turn out. The Scouts love our MSID program because it offers value for parents purchasing tickets. The cost goes to support Westchester / Putnam Council Boy Scout activities. In the past we have provided 200 ID kits in a day. It all depends on manpower. WE NEED YOUR HELP!
IF YOU CAN COME OUT FOR A FEW HOURS AND HELP. Event is open to everyone. We have several positions to fill and no experience is needed. We need people to assist parents in filling out interview forms with height weight and contact details. We also need people to make ID badges or take pictures and fingerprints to enter in our ID computer systems. ID kits have helped find thousands of children nationwide by providing information for law enforcement to quickly use in Amber Alerts and other media like missing children’s pictures on Lotto machines screens.
It’s a great opportunity to bring family or friends to see our efforts of Masonic charitable programs in action. This is why most of us joined Masonry to help those in need and provide charity. 2100+ children will go missing each and every day. (see statistics below)
You and family can help out a while then walk around and enjoy the carnival along the Hudson River. It is a beautiful location.
Reply to email@example.com. Please include the hours you can help so we can plan. We need volunteers ….so please come help and keep our children safe.
WE WILL BE OUTSIDE SO DRESS FOR THE WEATHER. A tent will be set up but it gets windy along the Hudson River on Croton Point.
