MELVILLE, N.Y. July 10, 2014 (Korea Bizwire)–Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, hosted the  Company’s annual Promotional Night at Yankee Stadium on July 1 with the  National Center for Missing & Exploited Children and the New York  Yankees. During a pre-game ceremony before the Yankees’ game against  Tampa Bay, Ana Tavares, vice president, Finance & Accounting, Canon  U.S.A., presented John Walsh, co-founder of NCMEC and John Arnos, NCMEC  advisor, with a check in the amount of $508,213, representing the  cumulative total of monetary and product donations Canon assisted in  raising in 2014. As part of the celebration, the first 18,000 fans that  entered the stadium received a Canon and Yankees branded baseball cap.

“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. The program educates parents and guardians about  how a current digital photograph is one of the most important tools to  help locate a missing child.
