healthier kids,” said Michele Fumerton, National Media and Marketing
Director, for CSN.

Since 1989, CSN has
been a national leader in the delivery of free resources and programs
designed to protect children. CSN has been endorsed by over 500 U.S.
representatives including the current and past four presidential
administrations. Last month, all 100
U.S. Senators joined in a unanimous resolution to support CSN’s work
in the area of school bus safety. CSN’s mission is to prevent the
likelihood of children becoming victims of abuse, abduction, injury,
violence and exploitation. Equally important to CSN’s mission is to
collaborate with community organizations and businesses that care about
helping parents raise safer, healthier children.
