Mission 500 launched in the Canadian security market during the 2014 Security Canada Central Expo. Canadian manufacturer RBH Access, Brampton, Ont., committed to support Mission 500’s efforts with a $5,000 donation, which will be used to sponsor nine children. In addition, RBH Access signed on to be a sponsor of the Mission 500 Security 5/2K at ISC West 2015 in Las Vegas. Pelco by Schneider Electric, Orangeburg, N.Y., showed its support at the event with a slide show of its engagement with Mission 500 over the years, including the Security 5/2K and various Kit Builds they have sponsored.
Mission 500 continues to expand its objectives through the efforts of many great people in the industry who are choosing to make a difference, the organization said. Supporters now include more than 50 volunteers in four countries. A new Canadian volunteer committee has been formed. The Mission 500 goal in Canada, as in other countries, is to reach at least 500 sponsored children.
