A Commitment to Keeping Kids Safe

Thanks to IntegraScan, a Charity Navigator sponsor, any organization (charity or not) is eligible to receive free criminal background checks of employees and volunteers through its Safe Kids program. With the looming summer camp season and plentiful youth outdoor sports programs going on at this time of year, we wanted to highlight this vital service once again.

Last year, as the economic downturn erupted, this civic-minded company was dismayed to see requests for these all-important checks drying up. They decided to do something about it by donating $6 million in annual free background checks so that everyone involved can rest easy knowing that their children or those they oversee are safe and secure. And, even though the economy has improved somewhat, IntegraScan's commitment to the Safe Kids program continues at the same level. Click here to learn more and to sign your organization up. And thanks again, IntegraScan, for your commitment to corporate social responsibility!
