Abingdon, VA (Tuesday, June 26, 2012) – Food City recently presented a check in the amount of one thousand dollars ($1,000) to the Johnson City Police Department to benefit their Kid Print Program.
The Kid Print Program distributes kid print identification cards free of charge. These cards feature the child’s updated photo, name, information, description and finger prints, as well as detailed parental instructions on the proper steps to follow should their child become missing.
“Child safety is the primary concern of any parent and we’re extremely proud to partner with a program that provides such a vital service to our loyal shoppers and the communities we serve,” said Steven C. Smith, Food City president and chief executive officer.
Officers were on hand administering the Kid Print Program at select Food City locations during the month of June.
“The Johnson City Police Department is very appreciative of the support we have received from Food City, as it demonstrates their commitment to the well-being of our community through the Kid Print Program,” said Police Chief Mark Sirois.
Headquartered in Abingdon, Virginia, K-VA-T Food Stores, Inc. currently operates 105 retail food outlets in the tri-state regions of Southeast Kentucky, Southwest Virginia and Northeast Tennessee.
