Apx employees were scheduled to deliver gifts to chlldren in 42 cities across the country (and Calgary and Edmonton, Canada) on Dec. 11.

Houser said that teaming up with Sub for Santa “gives us at APX Alarm and those who contribute in the community an incredible opportunity to help families who are struggling in the community.”
