Wal-Mart helping find Missing and exploited Children
Wal-Mart stores started helping find missing and exploited children around the world in 1996.
Wal-Mart along with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children formed the Missing Children's Network
The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children is a private, non-profit organization that works under a Congressional mandate in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Justice.
When you enter a Wal-Mart store anywhere around the world you can find a bulletin board inside the store with photos and information about children that have been.
Missing children are also featured on the Wal-Mart Television Network.
The bulletin boards and television have helped recover hundreds of missing and exploited children.
If you recognize a child on the bulletin board that you may have seen be sure to call 1-800-843-5678.
Wal-Mart also has what is called a (Code Adam). Code Adam is used in Wal-Marts across the United States to alert all employees of a lost or missing child that had been in the store.
