Tri-Ed Sales Meeting Rallied Support for Mission 500
At Tri-Ed's annual Sales Meeting, held recently at the Marco Island Marriott in Marco Island, Florida, the Tri-Ed and Anixter teams, along with several supporting supplier partners, proudly participated in a Mission 500 team-building event. They gathered to organize and pack up 450 backpacks filled with notebooks, folders, rulers, pencils and many other items necessary for childhood education. The backpacks are being distributed via World Vision to children in need.
Mission 500 is a strictly non-profit organization dedicated to serving the needs of children and communities in crisis. Since 2007, when Mission 500 was introduced into the Security industry, the charity has gained the support of many segments of the industry, including associations, distributors, individuals and manufacturers. Mission 500 focuses on helping needy children and communities throughout the world by providing a sustained flow of food, clothing, and education to those children who might otherwise be malnourished, diseased, or without the necessary skills to provide for themselves and families. The financial results World Vision has achieved are nothing short of outstanding: $0.86 of every $1.00 goes directly to the needy – a ratio considered to have one of the very lowest management overheads among charity organizations.
“Our 2014 Annual Sales Meeting was a tremendous success and a perfect opportunity to bring our sales organization and key suppliers together," Pat Comunale reported. "We were thrilled to also take this opportunity to support such a worthy cause as Mission 500. They do wonderful work, and it was our honor to support their cause on behalf of children in need."
