My name is Savannah Lovelace and I am the Development Coordinator at The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children-Texas Regional Office. We have a big art show on May 5th at McKinney & Olive in downtown Dallas and are hoping the talented artists of DFW are willing to help by creating art to help protect a Dallas child. The Cinco De Mayo 5X5 Art Show benefits the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children-Texas Regional Office.
The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children Texas Regional Office provides safety education to children, families, schools and the larger community in Texas. We also provide training, technical assistance and resources to law enforcement personnel and others who investigate crimes committed against children, specifically cases of child sexual exploitation. According to the FBI, in 2016 there were 465,676 NCIC entries for missing children – 10% were from Texas. NCMEC never stops searching and our hope is that through our programs, we can work to reduce this number.
Information below and thank you for your consideration!
