Enterprise Security is more than just a business. It’s a network of like-minded individuals who all have one thing in common: the desire to help and protect others. Sometimes, that attitude extends our services beyond the typical scope of work. Over the weekend of June 4th, several members of Enterprise Security’s Arizona branch volunteered to provide pro bono services for The Sojourner Center in Phoenix, Arizona. In conjunction with ASIS International, with our efforts coordinated by Dave Toon, the volunteers, Jeff Brandon, Andrew Ketchum, Humberto Diaz, Chris Flynn, and Dave Calhoun all cooperated to service the facility’s CCTV system. Ensuring that the center’s security surveillance is functioning properly is vital to maintaining peace of mind for those who work for this great organization.
If you’re unacquainted with The Sojourner Center, it is a shelter that provides aid to women and children affected by domestic violence. The organization’s services accommodate a broad spectrum of individuals from varying cultural and economic backgrounds within Arizona, with educational and advocacy efforts spanning the globe. Words can’t describe how deserving The Sojourner Center is of our Arizona team’s volunteer work. In regards to the services provided, Melissa Dicesare, the center’s corporate relations manager, had this to say:
“The Community Outreach Committee of the ASIS International Phoenix Chapter has supported Sojourner Center for many years, and the support continued through a two day volunteer event on Sojourner Center’s campus Friday, June 3rd and Saturday, June 4th. Over 40 volunteers came together for these two days to support in the Donation Resource Center and upgrade the campus camera system! Volunteers did various projects from cleaning and organizing, to stocking and sorting through donations in the Donation Center. Volunteers also spent over half a day in record heat, installing new, donated cameras and SD cards, upgrading our system, and repairing issues throughout our campus all to ensure the safety of the women and children on campus. Thanks to the generosity of Enterprise Security, Inc., Axis, First Credit Union, and ASIS volunteers for their passion to ensure the safety of the women and children at Sojourner Center!”
