Old Navy Advocates Child Safety
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - The Cedar Rapids Old Navy store dedicated a day to child safety awareness Sunday. Old Navy stores nationwide did the same over the weekend in partnership with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
The clothing store educated children and their parents about the importance of 911 and the rules of dealing with strangers. Kids were fingerprinted by law enforcement officials and were able to explore a fire truck and ambulance at the site.
Old Navy and the community found the “stranger danger” concept important during the investigation of the two missing Black Hawk County Girls.
“You know us in this area, it really hits home after what happened with the Evansdale girls, kind of makes it a little more here and now. Showing there were not immune to it in smaller town,” Old Navy manager Shannon Plagman said.
Parents that made donations to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children were given a shopping discount.
