Help Children in Need by Participating in Mission 500 Events at ISC West 2014
The professional security community continues to show its unyielding support of children in need with an unprecedented number of charitable events and programs scheduled to take place at ISC West 2014. Proceeds from the sponsored activities will be donated to Mission 500 and distributed by World Vision to children in crisis around the globe.
“As we move well beyond our initial goal of sponsoring 500 children in need around the world, the professional security industry continues to show its dedication to this all important effort,” said Advisory Council Member/Volunteer of Mission 500, George Fletcher. “As we mark the 5th anniversary of the Mission 500 5K/2K, our growing roster of sponsors continues to provide new platforms for donations and volunteer work from a growing number of corporate and individuals benefactors.”
