An event hopes to keep kids safe, by giving them an I-D card.

It's called Project KidCare.

The event was held at Binghamton University this afternoon.

Workers made free I-D cards for kids.

The children's information was also put on file with police.

Dozens of parents brought their children to the event.

They thought the cards could play a part in potentially saving their child's life.

Workers say I-D cards can save valuable time when searching for a missing child.

"There's a problem with children going missing or god forbid being kidnapped. And what we want to do is hope to prevent that," said Nichole Vidiri with Binghamton University Scholars.

The event makes ID's and also a kit with the child's fingerprints.

The Binghamton University Scholars along with the New York Sate University Police and B-U Police hosted Project KidCare.
