MCI HELPS KEEP KIDS SAFE THIS HALLOWEEN; FREE FINGERPRINTING FOR AREA CHILDREN

 DALLAS, Oct. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- MCI announced today it will host its child identification program, "Ident-A-Kid," where MCI will fingerprint children, free of charge, on Saturday, Oct. 23, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., at Nor-Buck Park (on the corner of Northwest Highway and Buckner).
 MCI is sponsoring this program so that parents will have complete records of their children's identifying characteristics. At the event, parents will receive their child's fingerprinted cards on which they may list other important information including the child's full name, age, height, weight, date of birth, gender, race, eye and hair color. Children must be accompanied by a parent for the fingerprinting.
 Children who participate in the "Ident-A-Kid" program will receive a trick-or-treat bag filled with goodies, compliments of MCI.
 "Because MCI is committed to the safety and well-being of kids everywhere, we are sponsoring this service in order to provide our community with greater awareness of safety issues," said Ramon Gregory, director of MCI's Dallas Customer Service Center.
 Members of the Dallas Police and Fire departments will be on hand to provide safety tips and answer any questions parents or children may have.
