MISSION 500

ABOUT

You must be the change you want to see in the world.
 (Mahatma Gandhi)
It is this type of belief that drives those who support Mission 500; we must change and become catalysts to make the world a better place by focusing our efforts and contributions toward the biggest asset of our future: our children.

Mission 500 is a nonprofit organization that works closely with the security industry to serve the needs of children and communities in crisis. Mission 500’s primary goal was to focus security industry efforts on sponsoring more than 500 children through partner nonprofit charities. Through corporate sponsorships and donors, this volunteer-driven initiative is now sponsoring more than 1,100+ children, has generated more than $4 million in cash, product and service donations, 27,000+ meals, and distributed more than 10,000 book bags filled with school supplies to students attending Title One schools. For more information on individual or corporate contributions, volunteering and sponsorships, please visit mission500.org or contact Jeff Eichenlaub at jeichenlaub@mission500.org.
