IL - Protection 1, the largest full-service business and home security
company in the U.S., today announced that it has just completed its third annual
"All for 1 Day" where its employees volunteered their time for local causes that
will benefit the communities where they live and work. During this year's event,
team members from 70 branches across the country donated more than 1,000 hours
in support of a wide range of projects benefiting more than 30 organizations and
communities. The projects ranged from serving meals at rescue missions, senior
centers and local Ronald McDonald's houses to blood, food and clothing drives
and community clean-up projects.
"For the past three years, our employees have enthusiastically participated in
"All for 1 Day" spending their time giving back to the communities where they
live," said Timothy J. Whall, Chairman and CEO of Protection 1. "This year we
saw quite a bit of activity supporting children's causes. Efforts such as "All
for 1 Day" personify our core company values and priorities and we firmly
believe that not only do we make a difference in providing safety and security
measures to our customers, but we make our communities a better place to live."
Protection 1's "All for 1 Day" gives its employees the latitude to choose
projects that will make the greatest impact in their areas. Team members from
Dallas, Texas took the day to paint rooms at Camp Summit, a premier camp that
provides a barrier-free environment for adults and children with disabilities.
Team members in Birmingham spent the day cleaning up Jessie's Place, a women and
children's shelter in that city. In Los Angeles, a food, clothing and essentials
drive was held in support of Children of the Night while the Topeka/Lawrence, KS
branches held a car wash to raise money for Helping Hands, another
not-for-profit that supports families with disabled children.
"All for 1 Day" also gives Protection 1 associates a vehicle to work together
outside of their office environments and is a great avenue for fostering team
building and an enormous sense of pride.
