Mission 500, the non-profit charitable organization dedicated to serving children and communities in need across the U.S, partnered with angel sponsor, ADI Global Distribution, this past January to raise more than $93,000 to support corporate social responsibility across the security industry and help underprivileged children in communities across America.
“Once again, ADI was honored to host this meaningful Mission 500 event and bring together our team members and supplier partners to help children in need during these trying times,” said Rob Aarnes, President of ADI Global Distribution. “The outpouring of generosity exceeded our expectations, and we are grateful to the individuals and companies that came together to support this great cause and help make a positive impact in our communities.”
This is the second year ADI teamed up with Mission 500, and the virtual event far exceeded the fundraising goal of $15,000. As part of the efforts, team members across the company made donations to support the cause and ADI matched all employee contributions received. Additionally, ADI called upon its supplier partners to support the initiative with sponsorships at varying levels.
“ADI continues to go above and beyond in supporting Mission 500 to help improve the lives of so many in children and families in need across the U.S.,” said Ken Gould, Chairman of Mission 500. “This event is further testimony to the generosity of the security industry, and we thank all who participated in making this virtual event such a huge success.”
