At Sonitrol Security, one of our strongest beliefs and founding principles is giving back to our communities. As a company, we do this in a variety of ways- primarily through keeping families safe nationwide. However, our team looks for more ways than our products to give back. From community service to donating, we have recently been involved in two events to give back to our local California communities. Today we want to share the details of each of these community events, how we participated, and how you can help your own communities as well.
National Night Out
The first event we attended during this season is called National Night Out. National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie.
National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. Additionally, provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.
Millions of people participate in National Night Out across thousands of communities from all fifty states across the US and worldwide on the first Tuesday in August (Texas and some areas celebrate on the first Tuesday in October). Neighborhoods host block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts and other community events with safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel, exhibits and more to promote learning about safety and community.
Back-To-School Backpack Drive
The Back-To-School Backpack Drive is a program used to collect nutritious, non-perishable food items, collected in a backpack and then given to children in schools. These children then take the backpacks home and are able to eat the food over the weekends, then bring the backpack back the following week and they are sent home with a new load of food for the week.
This is an important program and way to give back to the less fortunate children in our communities who are not able to get all of the nutrients and food they need at home. We want to lend a helping hand to these families and keep these children well-nourished, safe, and feeling loved.
Why We Care About Our Communities
So, why does Sonitrol care about our communities? For starters, we care about keeping our communities as safe environments for families and friends to enjoy without fear. Our children are the future generations of our communities and it is out jobs to protect them and look out for their well-being. Giving back goes a long way by spreading comradery, kindness, and a sense of fellowhsip. Aside from using our own security systems, we want to participate in these events to give back even more.
We hope that you will join us in giving back to your own communities and looking for ways to help others in need. The impact from giving back will be far reaching and long-lasting.
