Monitronics is encouraging employees to participate in the project by donating money, or by supplying and assembling “Promise Pack” backpack kits which include basic hygiene items, such as soap, shampoo, washcloths, insect repellent, toothpaste and toothbrushes. The packs also include educational supplies, such as pencils, crayons and rulers, along with a note of encouragement from donors.

The backpacks, shipped Aug. 27, were then provided to children affected by the humanitarian crisis. The organization planned to gather more than 6,000 packs.

“Our industry is made up of people who believe in safety and security,” Barb Holliday, Monitronics director of dealer services, said in the release. “Providing security to the world’s neediest children is something of which we can all be proud."
