OREM, UT -- (Marketwire) -- 11/07/12 -- Pinnacle Security, a leader in the residential security industry, today announced it has a donation of $45,000 to the Wounded Warrior Project, presented last Saturday following the company's annual 5K charity run. The check was presented to Mary Tallouzi of Wounded Warrior Project whose son passed away from an injury sustained while he served his country in the military.
Accepting the check, Ms. Tallouzi commented, "We rely on support of this nature and are pleased to accept this donation on behalf of our organization. We would like to thank Pinnacle Security and its sales force for their generosity and will make use of the funds to help our wounded troops as they return home to a grateful nation."
Much of the contribution came from personal donations made from Pinnacle representatives during the company's July 4th dedicated fundraiser where representatives were allowed to donate commissions in honor of our military. Additional donations were collected through Pinnacle's annual charity run, a 5K that brought hundreds of participants to run for Wounded Warrior Project.
"Pinnacle Security has great respect for all members past, present and future of the armed forces and their supporting families. We hope to further the project's mission with our support," said Stuart Dean, Vice President of Corporate Communications, Pinnacle Security. "We hope that with our employees sacrifice to this great cause we can generate a larger, local community awareness of the needs of wounded veterans."
Wounded Warrior Project's stated mission is to work to raise awareness and enlist the public's aid for the needs of severely injured service men and women, to help severely injured service members aid and assist each other, and to provide unique, direct programs and services to meet their needs.
Pinnacle Security's philanthropic initiative, PNCL aid accepts donations year round for the causes it supports. Begun in the fall of 2009, with the Securing Hope philanthropic initiative, Pinnacle security has held three charity races and multiple fundraising events that have collectively donated over $150,000 to several causes. The company's charitable efforts also include tens of thousands of hours of serving in their communities.
