Community Safety Saturday to Focus on Child Safety

The KlaasKids Foundation, California Highway Patrol, Turlock Police Department, American Red Cross, and Turlock Rural Fire Department will be participating in GDI Insurance Agency’s Community Safety Saturday event on June 25th from 10am – 2pm.

It is personal experiences from people like Lorraine Azevedo, an account manager at GDI Insurance Agency in Turlock whose son was nearly kidnapped, that inspired GDI Insurance Agency President Grant Davis to co-host “Community Safety Saturday” in Turlock with Capital Insurance Group (CIG).
“We are holding this important free event to give people in our community the opportunity to learn from law enforcement and other experts how to protect their children and their families,” notes Grant Davis. 
The event will be held at the GDI Insurance Agency, located at 801 Geer Road in Turlock. 
Marc Klaas, the father of Polly Klaas who was kidnapped and murdered in 1993, and whose mission is to stop crimes against children with his KlaasKids Foundation, will be at the event. The KlaasKids Foundation will provide Digital Photo ID & Finger Print Kits for every child. Parents will also receive a free DNA Collection Kit, child safety tips and a 9-point plan on what to do if a child disappears.
Also joining Marc Klass and Lorraine Azevedo with experiences, Tabitha Cardenas will be attending the event.
On January 18, 2011, 4-year old Juliani Cardenas was snatched from his grandmother’s arms in Patterson, California by her mother’s boyfriend Jose Esteban Rodriguez, age 27.  At the time, Juliani’s mother, Tabitha Cardenas, was 8-1/2 months pregnant with Rodriguez’ daughter but the couple had split up. Rodriguez kidnapped Juliani and then drove his vehicle into the Delta-Mendota Canal. His body and Juliana’s body were subsequently discovered there. Since that time, Tabitha has had a baby daughter, but nothing will replace her son’s life. She is committed to helping others by sharing her story and supporting Community Safety Saturday.

•    The KlaasKids Foundation will be hosting the KlaasKids Print-A-Thon which provides Digital Photo ID & Finger Print Kits for every child. Parents receive a free DNA Collection Kit, child safety tips and a 9-point plan on what to do if your child disappears.

"You may get a variety of fabrics for the best activewear for women online, including cotton, spandex, synthetic, bamboo fiber, and Gore-Tex. Each of these materials has distinctive properties that set them apart. Since polyester is incredibly light and comfortable to wear, we advise you to utilize it. Athletic clothing frequently uses polyester as a fabric. Shirts for activewear, sweatpants and jogging jackets usually contain polyester blends.

  • PaulWatkins on How does a real estate agency work? "Hi Dans Andrew, I'm glad you have made the right decision because a real estate agency is a promising career. Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller. This is how real estate agencies work, and estate agents earn."

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
  • paul on Why are customer reviews important during online shopping? "The most crucial component of every online store is its customer reviews. Reviews can assist other customers in determining whether or not the business and its items are worthwhile purchases. If you earn positive evaluations, your brand will gain an enormous reputation and rank better on Google. According to Google's recently modified algorithm, a business can increase its performance by obtaining reviews. This is the rationale behind inquiries about reviews on Google, Facebook, and other online clothing stores for women."
