More than 30 security industry companies, including SDM, came together to sponsor a softball game held by Mission 500, a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving the needs of children and communities in crisis. 
Held in Ridgefield Park, N.J., on September 12, the game raised funds from members of the security industry to assist American children living in challenging circumstances.
“This softball game was a new and fun way for the security industry to come together and raise money for needy children in the U.S.,” said George Fletcher, advisory council member/volunteer for Mission 500. “Our sponsors help us provide aid to those affected by poverty.” 
Proceeds from the event, which totaled $75,000, will be used to generate awareness of child poverty in America and directly support those in need.
Hikvision USA was a platinum sponsor of the event. “At Hikvision, we recognize the importance of giving back to our local community,” said Jeffrey He, president of Hikvision USA Inc. and Hikvision Canada Inc. “We thank Mission 500 for the opportunity to help eliminate child poverty.”
