Beau Biden Foundation offering missing child tool at Blue Rocks game

You can get more than a hot dog and some nachos at Friday night’s Blue Rocks game in Wilmington.

The Beau Biden Foundation will be at Frawley Stadium to help parents create a child identification kit.

“We’ll take a picture of the child. We’ll ask the child for their full name, height and weight, date of birth and any other distinguishing characteristic traits or marks on a child,” said Joshua Alcorn, chief engagement officer for the Beau Biden Foundation. 

Parents will then get a one-page printout of all their child’s information. The information isn't stored in a database and is deleted from the Biden Foundation's computers immediately, according to Alcorn.    

These one-page ID kits are critical tools for helping law enforcement find missing kids. Officers use this information in Amber Alerts and release it to news organizations when a child goes missing.  

You don’t need to bring anything to create an ID kit, besides your child.

They’re free and will be available along the 3rd base concourse at
Frawley Stadium before and during Friday night’s contest against the Carolina Mudcats.  

The ID kits are a partnership between the Beau Biden Foundation, the Boys and Girls Club of Delaware and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
