Shelton bank holds free child ID event

Newtown Savings Bank recently hosted a free Amber Alert child ID event at its Shelton Branch, 815 Bridgeport Ave. The Amber Alert Child ID program is a voluntary program for all children under age 18.

The parent/guardian of participating children received a wallet-size laminated card with the child’s photo and essential information that would be needed to find the child, and an Amber Alert number that is registered with national database.

The event also included face painting, snacks and beverages for attendees.
