Mission 500 makes meaningful impact at Resideo’s 2023 Connect Customer Event

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.—Mission 500, a non-profit organization dedicated to serving the needs of children and communities in crisis, recently partnered with Resideo to kick off the community service activity at its 2023 CONNECT Customer Event in Scottsdale.

Mission 500 joined forces with Resideo in a heartwarming initiative that brought immense benefits to the Phoenix Children's Foundation Homeless Youth Outreach program. Attendees and sponsors came together to construct a total of 500 care packs.

These carefully assembled packs included 250 tailored for children, and another 250 packs focused on providing much-needed support to their caregivers. The children's packs included crayons, coloring books, comforting teddy bears, and games. Meanwhile, the caregiver packs contained essential hygiene items.

But the impact did not stop there. Mission 500 also entrusted the Resideo volunteers with a creative task – making 30-second videos that conveyed messages of love and hope to the children. Seven teams participated, infusing their messages with their unique touch of creativity, resulting in inspiring and heartfelt video messages.

Mission 500In addition to its efforts at the conference, Mission 500 had the privilege of presenting a generous $5,000 donation on behalf of Resideo to Jesse Cole - the keynote speaker at Resideo CONNECT 2023 and the owner of Savannah Bananas - for him and his wife Emily’s Bananas Foster charity that seeks to create a brighter future for foster kids and the community. This significant contribution was made in recognition of Cole's outstanding work in supporting foster children.

Tracy Larson, co-chair of Mission 500, expressed her gratitude, saying, "The experience with the Resideo team and the Resideo dealer community was one-of-a-kind. The amount of love generated from their event has truly left us speechless. We are grateful for being brought in as part of the family and cannot express how what they have done will help so many."

Scott Harkins, VP of sales for Resideo, shared his enthusiasm for Mission 500's involvement, stating, "We loved having Mission 500 touch each and every heart in the room showing that together we can accomplish something truly inspiring."

The partnership between Mission 500 and Resideo exemplifies the power of collaboration and community engagement in making a positive impact on the lives of children and their caregivers.
