Mission 500, the non-profit charitable organization, teamed up with ADI Global Distribution to raise more than $97,000 to support underprivileged children and promote corporate social responsibility across the security industry.

This is the third year that Mission 500 has partnered with ADI. Last year, the security company received the Corporate Social Responsibility Award for its ongoing participation.

ADI hosted a virtual fundraiser as part of its annual Kickoff and Supplier Symposium held earlier this year.

They invited team members across the company as well as suppliers to support the initiative. The ADI team contributed $28,600 reportedly matching the donations of team members one to one. In addition, ADI called upon its suppliers to support the efforts with sponsorships at varying levels that generated $68,500.

“The work that Mission 500 does to assist families and children is inspiring,” said Bob Appleby, vice president and general manager of ADI North America in a statement.

“It was an honour to see our team and suppliers so generously support this initiative. This partnership is a testimony of our industry’s commitment to help keep our communities safe and secure, and also see them thrive.”
