As a family-owned business, New Horizon Security believes families are at the heart of our society, and actively looks for ways to lend support to families in need. That’s why we support organizations like SERVE, the Manassas campus of Northern Virginia Family Services.
As a company, New Horizon Security is committed to giving back to the communities in which we live and work. The generosity of New Horizon Security employees continues to drive this commitment.
One example of this commitment is a recent food drive in September. New Horizon Security employees rallied together to donate more than 200 pounds of canned food to a pantry operated by SERVE.
And in October, when Northern Virginia Family Services issued an urgent call for donations of new or gently used clothing and household items for their network of shelters, the New Horizon Security stepped up to answer that call.
Donation boxes were set up in the home office in Manassas for several weeks. Employees gave generously, and the Company matched their donations with new items. We’re proud that as a result, we were able to deliver three large boxes and multiple bags of new and gently used items, including:
- 16 coats/jackets
- 4 packs of 10 socks
- 5 blankets
- 16 bath towels
- 16 hand towels
- 7 sheet sets
- 7 pairs of gloves
- 7 hats
- 6 pairs of boots/shoes
- 4 shower curtain liners
- 4 bug proof pillow cases
- 3 pillows
- Various miscellaneous clothing items for men and women
Jan Hawkins, Volunteer Coordinator at SERVE was very appreciative of the donations from New Horizon Security. “The linens will be a big help to our families who are moving out of the shelter and into permanent housing. The clothing will be very helpful to our residents. Thank you for your generosity.”
Next up, New Horizon Security employees are stuffing stockings for children of families in need, and sponsoring an angel tree, in which we hope to provide each of the ‘angels’ their holiday wishes.
