Pinnacle Security's Wichita, Kansas Team Helps Habitat for Humanity

Project Advances Company's Securing Hope Initiative to Provide Support and Aid to Those in Need

OREM, UT--(Marketwire - Jul 22, 2011) - Pinnacle Security, a leader in the North American residential security market, today announced that its Wichita, Kan. office partnered with Habitat for Humanity to help to complete two new homes in the local area. Part of Pinnacle's Securing Hope philanthropic initiative, more than 20 of the company's security consultants gave their time to the project as they built framing, installed roofing and laid flooring in the two homes, alongside other volunteers.

"As a company, we focus on giving people peace of mind by making them more secure," said Stuart Dean, Vice President of Corporate Communications, Pinnacle Security. "The incredible work Habitat for Humanity does, providing decent, safe, and affordable housing to families in need, is a natural fit with our mission and we're proud so many of our consultants wanted to get involved."

Pinnacle Security's Securing Hope initiative directs resources to various causes in the U.S. and abroad. As part of the program, Pinnacle offices around the country devote a day of service in their communities and connect with local United Way centers, as well as other similar organizations, to identify areas of need. In this case, United Way had a request for volunteers from Habitat for Humanity, and Pinnacle's Wichita office was ready to help.

"The Habitat for Humanity program is about giving a hand to a family that is willing to work toward their goal of affordable homeownership," said Laurie Walker, Acting Executive Officer and Operations Officer, Wichita Habitat for Humanity. "Wichita Habitat for Humanity is grateful to the Pinnacle volunteers who gave of their time and talent during one of our recent build events. Their participation will help further our mission to end poverty housing in our community by providing decent, affordable housing for people in need."

Regional Manager for Pinnacle Security, McKay Selph said, "There is a strong culture of service at Pinnacle and I was pleased and touched by the team's response to this opportunity. They were very enthusiastic, and worked in groups all over the houses, putting in windows, roofing, laying flooring and framing among other things. It was a wonderful experience to deliver something so fundamental and tangible to families in need."
