Key tags help child amputees

Surrey’s Emily Antonyk

Child amputees are among those who benefit from The War Amps Key Tag Service, and organizers are hoping B.C. residents will once again support the cause.

The program helps reunite lost keys with their owners through coded tags that attach to key chains. Anyone who finds a set of lost keys can simply call a phone number on the back of the tag or drop the keys in a Canada Post mailbox, and they will be returned to the owner by bonded courier.

The tags will be mailed out across the province starting Jan. 17.

Proceeds from donations for the service help fund artificial limbs and other supports for members of The War Amps Child Amputee Program (CHAMP).

Since 1946, the program has returned more than one million sets of keys.
