Pinnacle Security's "Securing Hope" Initiative Sends Volunteer Team to Belize
Security Company Partners With Domes for Belize to Construct Disaster-Proof Homes
OREM, UT, Nov 29, 2011 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- Pinnacle Security, a leader in the North American residential security market, recently completed a week-long home-building project in Belize as part of the company's philanthropic initiative, "Securing Hope." A group of 27 Pinnacle representatives spent one week in November building eco-domes for families in Belize through the nonprofit organization Domes for Belize.
Volunteers including Pinnacle representatives and their family members, as well as supporters of Domes for Belize, raised funds and participated in the construction of disaster-proof housing for families in Belize. The dome-shaped construction of the homes allows them to withstand natural disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes and earthquakes.
"As part of our Securing Hope initiative, Pinnacle sets up humanitarian opportunities as often as possible, many times partnering with organizations like Domes for Belize to make the most significant impact we can," said Stuart Dean, vice president of corporate communications for Pinnacle Security. "Service is an integral part of our company DNA and that desire and commitment to help is part of what makes up a Pinnacle representative. This trip to Belize is one example of our commitment as a company to a culture of service."
Funding for the Domes for Belize project came from a charity run organized by Pinnacle, as well as additional contributions from Pinnacle associates. Pinnacle sponsored its Third Annual Charity Run with events in October and November, raising tens of thousands of dollars for both Domes for Belize and Beyond Borders. Additionally, Pinnacle representatives who desired to build the homes in Belize donated commission from four to five sales to provide additional funding.
"Families were able to move into the homes as soon as they were finished which just takes a few days," said Scott Warner, a regional vice president for Pinnacle Security. "It was an amazing experience to build safe homes and create an immediate positive impact for these families. Our entire group was so pleased to be a part of it."
In addition to building dome homes, the Pinnacle volunteers painted a local school and donated boxes of groceries to nearby families. The team completed one dome home and began construction on two others. Warner plans to return to Belize next year to build multiple homes for several families in Belize.
