MIAMI — Mission 500, a nonprofit charitable organization focusing on the security industry, is accepting nominations for the 2020 Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Award and 2020 Humanitarian Award.

Both awards will be presented at the Security 5/2K awards ceremony on March 19 during ISC West in Las Vegas.

Mission 500 is dedicated to serving children and families in need across the United States. The 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 2019, Brinks Home Security received the CSR Award.
