The Oregon legislature passed a bill allowing the production and selling of the “Keep Kids Safe” license plates with the additional charge going to county programs which help prevent child abuse. In Deschutes County the examples are the relief nurseries and parenting classes.
The legislation requires we sell at least 500 per year to keep the “Keep Kids Safe” license plate purchase an option.
The sale of the license plate provides funds to prevent child abuse and a small billboard to make people aware of this need in our communities.
We need to sell about 100 more license plates before October 31, 2013. You may purchase the license plate even if your current plates are not due to be renewed. The cost is pro-rated.
The Oregon Children Trust Fund of Oregon is now the agency in charge of managing the program and allocating the distribution of the funds. They also have a link to help order the plates at: http://ctfo.org/support-kids/kkslicenseplate/.
Thank you very much and please buy a “Keep Kids Safe” license plate today.
