[SDM Magazine – 11/12/20] Security 101 has announced that 20 office locations across the U.S. will participate in the 9th Annual Gift of Security corporate giving program. Each participating office will award a custom installation of a video surveillance system using best-in-class security products from national strategic partners Axis Communications and WESCO Distribution. Each installation is valued at a grand prize total of $10,000 — making a total program value of $200,000.
The locally owned Security 101 offices participating in the 2020 Gift of Security program include Austin, Texas; Chicago; Columbus, Ohio; Cleveland; Charlotte, N.C.; Detroit; Houston; Indianapolis; Las Vegas; Minneapolis; Orlando, Fla.; Philadelphia; Pittsburgh; Richmond, Va.; Rochester, N.Y.; San Antonio; Salt Lake City; San Francisco; St. Louis, Mo.; and Seattle.
The Gift of Security originated at the Security 101 – Salt Lake City location in 2013. Since the inaugural year, the program has grown annually in size and breadth with security systems installed in nonprofits across the nation.
Brian Mathieu, director of sales for the Security 101 corporate team said, “This year has been a challenge for a vast majority of organizations across the United States and if we can help to bring some added safety and security to a local nonprofit that makes me feel good.”
Nominations opened on Oct. 22 and are being accepted until Nov. 15, 2020. Online voting will go live on Nov. 25, 2020 after the finalists are announced and will remain open to the public through Dec. 11, 2020.

About the Gift of Security from Security 101
The Gift of Security is a national corporate giving initiative that provides $10,000 worth of integrated security services from Security 101 and equipment from product partners, Axis Communications and WESCO, to one nonprofit winner at each participating office location.
Local Security 101 offices throughout the U.S. participate and engage a panel of judges from the community to help review nonprofit nominations. Reviewing the information for each organization, the judges identify (3) qualified nonprofits to advance to the online voting process. The public voting process takes three weeks and determines the winner for the new security system. Voting will take place late November to early December and the winning organizations at each participating office will be announced mid December.
