Mission 500 recently hosted a service trip in Ponce, Puerto Rico where volunteers from the professional security industry worked on repairing the homes of two families still suffering from the effects of hurricane Maria which caused $92 billion in damage in October of 2017. Volunteers spent several days repairing roofs, siding and plumbing; installing new windows; and removing trees capable of causing additional damage to the affected structures.
Mission 500, a charitable organization that works closely with the security industry to serve children in need in the U.S., raised $113,000 at its ninth annual Security 5K/2K Run/Walk and related sponsorships at this year’s ISC West. Proceeds from the event will benefit children in need in the U.S., with a portion donated to a project in Puerto Rico which benefits children living in poverty who have been affected by Hurricane Maria. While at ISC West, attendees assembled Mission 500 Care Packs for 500 children in need living in Las Vegas. This initiative was generously sponsored by HID Global.
