Huronia Alarm & Fire Security Inc. (HAFS) recently donated an access control security system to Operation Grow.
Operation Grow is an initiative of Huronia Transition Homes. The program is designed to provide women with low-barrier employment opportunities a chance to gain valuable work experience, apprentice-skills, earn a living wage and transition to mainstream employment by growing fresh produce and herbs year-round, through vertical farming and cultivation practices. Volunteers will sell the greens from a retail space at their new location: 436 Bay Street, Midland, Ont.
“Security for the new premises and the safety of the people who work and visit the property is of the utmost importance,” said Kevin Leonard, COO, HAFS. “To be able to donate and install security equipment that will help ensure that the women and volunteers at Operation Grow can work safely and securely is a perfect fit to HAFS’ corporate giving policy, and we are thrilled to be involved in this really unique self-sustaining program.”
“There is a peace of mind that these access control products give our staff, volunteers, residents and visitors,” said Kathy Willis, executive director, Huronia Transition Homes. “Huronia has been an outstanding community partner and this donation is an indication of their commitment to ensuring a safe and secure environment for our women.”
