KlaasKids Foundation was established in 1994 to give meaning to the death of twelve-year-old kidnap and murder victim Polly Hannah Klaas and to create a legacy in her name that would be protective of children for generations to come. The Foundation's mission is to stop crimes against children. The Mungenast Automotive Family is honored to be the KlaasKids Foundation's oldest and most loyal sponsor; we have been hosting the KlaasKids's signature child safety event, the Print-A-Thon, since 1996. This high energy child safety event utilizes 21st-Century technology to fingerprint and photograph children and provides parents with DNA collection kits, pro-active child safety information, and a nine-point plan on what to do if their child disappears. Held in cities all over the country, the Print-A-Thon is always underwritten by community minded sponsors like the Mungenast Automotive Family who wish to maintain safe communities and give back to their loyal customers.
