ASSA ABLOY company HID Global will be sponsoring two events at the ISC West conference in April to support Mission 500, the security industry’s initiative to serve the needs of children and communities in crisis through partnership with the World Vis…

“At HID Global, we have been strong supporters of Mission 500 since its inception, and our continued dedication to this organization reflects our deep commitment to sharing our success with the many communities around the world where we operate, and to make a difference in young people's lives,” said Denis Hébert, HID Global President.

“At ISC West, we are very happy to be sponsoring a Mission 500-facilitated backpack-building project to help needy students, and a 5K run to raise money that will be used to feed, educate, clothes and provide healthcare for children in crisis, worldwide.”

The Mission 500 backpack-building project is open to volunteer participation and takes place on the first day of ISC West, April 2, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. in the visitor registration area at the Las Vegas Convention Center.  HID Global anticipates that the project will result in the assembly and delivery of approximately 450 backpacks. 

HID Global will also be helping to sponsor a 5K run/2K walk on the second day of the conference, from 7:30 a.m. until 8:30 a.m.  Runners may register at the following link for a nominal $30 fee, and all net proceeds raised will go to charity. Additional information about each event is available on the ISC West events pages or by emailing info@mission500.org.
