Security 101 announced 13 offices nationwide will participate in the 7th Annual Gift of Security corporate giving program. The Gift of Security is a national corporate giving initiative providing $10,000 worth of integrated security services from Security 101 and equipment from product partners Axis Communications and WESCO to one nonprofit winner from each participating office location. 

Local civic leaders helped each office select three deserving organizations to receive a system. Public voting for winners in each city is open through Dec. 10. Gift of Security winners will be announced on Dec. 14 with awards ceremonies and system installations set for January. To vote for an organization, visit the Gift of Security website.

Participating Security 101 offices include: Austin, Texas; Charlotte, NC; Cleveland, Ohio; Columbus, Ohio; Dallas, Texas; Detroit, Mich.; Hampton Roads/ Norfolk, Va.; Orlando, Fla.; Phoenix, Ariz.; Pittsburgh, Pa.; Richmond, Va.; Salt Lake City, Utah; and San Diego, Calif.

Since its inception in 2012, the program has benefited about 30 nonprofit groups including those serving children, the disabled, seniors, the homeless and domestic abuse victims.

“The Gift of Security is an annual highlight for TEAM101 — our way of giving back to the communities we serve,” said Steve Crespo, CEO of Security 101. “It lets us apply our expertise to help organizations that might not be able to afford to secure their facilities. This year we will be donating more than $150,000 in products and services.”
