“Each year we enjoy Canon Promotional Night at Yankee Stadium with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children and the New York Yankees because it is a night where we celebrate the efforts made to help bring missing children home,” said Kotaro Fukushima, senior director and general manager, Corporate Communications, Canon U.S.A. “Canon has been a sponsor of NCMEC for over 15 years and is proud to continue to support their mission of reuniting children with their loved ones.”

“We’re so grateful to Canon for its commitment to child safety and the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children,” said John Ryan, president and CEO, NCMEC. “They’ve been a dedicated partner for 17 years, providing technical and financial support that I know has helped save lives and reunite families, and I look forward to continuing that work with Canon by our side.”

Since 1997, Canon and NCMEC have worked together to raise awareness about the issue of missing and exploited children through the Canon4Kids program. As part of the Canon4Kids program, Canon has donated more than 2,200 pieces of equipment, including digital cameras, fax machines, printers and scanners, which have been distributed to law enforcement agencies in all 50 states, Puerto Rico and Guam.
