Security 101® - San Diego, a leading security systems integrator, announced Twin Hills Youth & Recreation Park as the winner of the 2018 Gift of Security. The corporate giving initiative donates $10,000 worth of integrated security services from locally owned offices, and equipment from program product partner, Axis Communications, to deserving nonprofits. All integrated security solutions provided are completely free for the nonprofit winner.
This year nearly 70,000 votes were cast collectively to determine 15 nonprofit award winners at different office locations throughout the country.
Since inception, the Gift of Security has provided integrated security solutions to nearly 30 organizations. The most challenging part is getting organizations to understand the legitimacy of the giving program and to nominate themselves. Local offices are privately owned and under no obligation to participate in the Gift of Security. In fact, employees at participating local offices often donate their time during the work week to execute the program and donate time on the weekend for installations.
The award presentation will take place in January 2018.
