HID Global Sponsors Initiative That Provides Care Packs to Families in Need

AUSTIN, Texas, May 15, 2018 – HID Global®, a worldwide leader in trusted identity solutions, sponsored a Mission 500 Care Pack initiative at the recent ISC West International Security Conference and Exhibition in Las Vegas.  Mission 500 is a charitable organization that works closely with the security industry to serve the needs of children living in severe poverty across the United States. 

By using their intimate knowledge of the security industry, Mission 500 has helped focus industry efforts on sponsoring volunteer-driven initiatives.  HID Global, a longtime supporter of Mission 500, sponsored a Care Pack Build at ISCWest where volunteers loaded 500 bags with healthcare supplies. These packs were then distributed by The Children’s Health Fund and were personally delivered by Mission 500, HID Global, Freeman and the ISC West Security Events team.

In addition to the Care Pack Build, Mission 500 also hosted its ninth annual Security 5k/2k Charity Run/Walk at ISC West.  Proceeds from this event, which raised $113,000, were donated to charity projects in both the US and Puerto Rico that help children living in poverty.

“HID Global is proud to sponsor an event with such a worthy cause,” said Rodney Glass, Senior Vice President and COO of HID Global. “HID remains committed to being a good corporate citizen by working with groups like Mission 500 and The Children’s Health Fund to help give back to communities in need.”
