Mission 500 opens nominations for 2021 Corporate Social Responsibility and Humanitarian Awards

MIAMI, Fla.—Mission 500, a non-profit charitable organization focusing on the security industry and dedicated to serving children and families in need across the U.S., is now accepting nominees for their 2021 Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Award and 2021 Humanitarian Award.

“2020 proved to be an especially challenging year, and perhaps even more stressful for many children and families already in need of assistance prior to the pandemic,” said Mission 500 Chairman Ken Gould said in the announcement. “The Mission 500 community rose to the challenge, with outstanding individual and corporate fundraising efforts. We ask for your nominations for the 2021 Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Humanitarian Awards to recognize outstanding achievement and help inspire others to join in this most noteworthy cause.”

The Mission 500 CSR Award honors a company in the security industry that has made a significant contribution to those in need. The judging criteria includes an assessment of applicants’ CSR programs as they relate to effectiveness in helping the communities they focus on, involvement of company personnel, sustainability, and long-term impact of the programs and activities that go beyond financial contributions.

Employees can nominate the company they work for, as well as partner organizations they work with. A judging panel comprised of Mission 500 Advisory Board Members evaluates applicants according to the criteria and applicants’ contributions toward social causes. In 2020, ADT received the CSR Award, while George Fletcher was awarded the Humanitarian accolade.

In addition to the CSR Award, Mission 500 is also looking for nominations for their Humanitarian award. The award recognizes individuals in the security industry who have made important contributions to those in need.

Entry forms for the Mission 500 2021 CSR and Humanitarian Awards can be downloaded at https://www.mission500.org/awards/ and submitted by March 31, 2021.

Since inception of their 501c3 status in 2016, the industry has helped produce 340,000 meals, assemble care packs filled with essential hygiene items for 3,700 families, and distribute more than 11,500 book bags filled with school supplies to students attending Title One schools.
