ADT Will Donate $1M to Nonprofits Hit Hard by COVID-19 Crisis
The funds are being allocated in $5,000 and $10,000 increments to nonprofits in communities where ADT employees live and work.
BOCA RATON, Fla. — ADT (NYSE: ADT) will provide $1 million through its ADT Always Cares program to support more than 100 nonprofit organizations in 44 states and Puerto Rico affected by COVID-19.
The funds are being allocated in $5,000 and $10,000 increments to nonprofits in communities where company employees live and work. Local ADT teams are determining which charities to support with choices ranging from soup kitchens and homeless shelters to first responder organizations or any other nonprofit which serves those in need.
“All of us at ADT are immensely grateful to our hometown heroes on the front lines who are selflessly continuing to serve their communities while facing the unique challenges of a COVID-19 environment,” says Jim DeVries, president and CEO. “Through our giving, we are supporting local organizations who share our passion and commitment to create safer neighborhoods, improve lives and help make the world a better place.”
The check presentations will start May 18 and continue through June. One of the first $10,000 recipients will be Gleaners, an Indianapolis food bank that has distributed over a half a billion pounds of food since 1980.
“Gleaners is navigating the hunger relief crisis associated with COVID-19. We are grateful for the ADT contribution which will help us provide emergency food boxes throughout our service area to hungry Hoosiers, many of whom find themselves struggling to put food on the table for the first time,” says John Elliott, president and CEO of Gleaners.
As part of the company’s Always Cares program, employees volunteer more than 20,000 hours each year benefiting hundreds of nonprofit organizations and touching the lives of thousands in need. Examples of support include providing meals through local food banks, building homes with Habitat for Humanity, beautifying Ronald McDonald Houses and much more.
ADT also supports police and fire departments through its LifeSaver celebrations, a signature program that recognizes ADT employees and first responders who help save the lives of ADT Customers.
