Since its beginning, the Gift of Security has provided integrated security solutions to nearly 30 organizations. The most challenging part is getting organizations to understand the legitimacy of the giving program and to nominate themselves. Local offices are privately owned and under no obligation to participate in the Gift of Security. In fact, employees at participating local offices often donate their time during the work week to execute the program and time on the weekend for installations.

“We wholeheartedly believe in giving back to the communities where we do business and several of the winners were subject to recent security incidents,” said Steve Crespo, Security 101’s chief executive officer. “Applying our expertise to help nonprofit organizations that otherwise might not be able to afford protection is why we are all so passionate. Our goal is to have all 37 office locations participating in the program.”
