War Amps Key Tags Appear in Mailboxes

If you ever lose your keys, the War Amps can help you get them back with their key tag program.

It's the 70th anniversary of the War Amps of Canada key chain service. 

Residents in Oxford County will be getting their War Amps key chains in the mail this month. The key chains are coded and if you lose your keys anyone who finds them can drop them off to any Canada Post mailbox or call the 1-800 number on the back of the key chain and the keys will be returned to you. Public Awareness Officer Jamie Lunn tells Heart FM the hope is that some people will donate a few dollars. 

"If people find value in this service they often choose to donate, especially with the high replacement cost with electronic keys and remote devices so people are definitely finding value in that service." 

All of the money raised will go towards helping child amputees in Canada get artificial arms and legs. 

"Well artificial arms and legs can cost upwards of $25,000 and so without the help of the War Amps, child amputees and their families would not be able to afford these artificial limbs and lead healthy and active lifestyles."
