nvision Financial and the Chilliwack Crime Prevention Services are partnering together to offer a complimentary Child Identification Day clinic on Friday, October 24 from 1 - 6 pm at Envision Financial's Sardis and Garrison Village locations in Chilliwack. Members of the community and media are invited to visit the branch with their families, where volunteers from the Chilliwack Crime Prevention Services will be onsite to finger print the children and provide them with their personalized Child ID book.

 

There will also be balloons, candy and coloring for the children.

"This is our first time partnering with Chilliwack Crime Prevention Services to offer this potentially life-saving service to our members and our community," said Shana Temple, branch manager at Envision Financial’s Sardis location. 'We are so proud to be able to support initiatives that contribute to the well-being of our local residents and their families and make a positive difference in their lives."

The two Chilliwack locations where this service will be offered are as follows:

• Envision Financial’s Sardis Branch at 45410 Luckakuck Way
• Envision Financial’s Garrison Village branch at Unit 1 - 45595 Market Way

"Child identification continues to be a popular program,” says Michelle Wulff, office manager at Chilliwack Crime Prevention Services. “Trained volunteers fingerprint children for identification purposes. In addition to the in-office requests for child identification services, volunteers attend many community events involving the Child Identification Program such as the Ann Davis Transition House Fun Fair, Sto:Lo Nations children fair, Chilliwack Central Community School and many more events with this program. This program is another positive resource which can educate parents and children, towards our children’s safety."


The clinic focuses on children 12 years and younger, including infants, and a parent or legal guardian must be present in order for the child to participate. Upon completing the Child ID book, none of the child's personal information will be kept by Envision Financial or Chilliwack Crime Prevention Services.
