ADT Announces Company-Wide Day Of Service In Honor Of 140th Birthday

ADT (NYSE: ADT), a leader in home security and automation, was founded on August 18, 1874 – 140 years ago. To commemorate this milestone in the company’s longstanding history of building trust in the communities it serves, ADT has announced its first-ever company-wide Day of Service. On Saturday, August 16, 2014, thousands of ADT team members from across North America will volunteer an estimated 13,000 hours in a single day to support over a hundred charitable organizations, including the American Red Cross, Second Harvest Food Bank, Boys and Girls Clubs of America, and local first responder organizations.

From building homes to refurbishing public spaces, ADT is able to measure employees’ participation in activities that are making a real impact in their local areas. In fact, nearly 40 percent of all eligible employees have volunteered through the ADT Always Cares community service program since it launched in June 2013, far surpassing the average participation rate for most corporate volunteer initiatives 1. ADT partners with VolunteerMatch, the largest online volunteer engagement network, to provide employees with resources and opportunities to easily get involved.

“Our team members come to work every day with the goal of helping build safer neighborhoods and more secure homes and businesses. It’s incredible to see their extended commitment and passion for building stronger communities through volunteerism,” said Naren Gursahaney, chief executive officer of ADT. “As we honor our 140th birthday with our first-ever, company-wide day of service, we’re excited to engage all 17,000 ADT team members through our Always Cares program.”

“The partnership with ADT demonstrates exactly how community-minded organizations can inspire and engage their employees to get active and support the causes they care about in their areas,” said Greg Baldwin, President of VolunteerMatch. “We congratulate ADT on its 140 th birthday, and are honored to support ADT Always Cares by continuing to bring a vast range of rewarding experiences and opportunities to an engaged and eager-to-help employee base.”

Rob Levine, American Red Cross Regional Executive for South Florida added, “ADT team members are making a true impact as they work with us on their first ever company-wide Day of Service to create stronger, more prepared and resilient communities. We are proud to call ADT a partner, as they help the American Red Cross further its mission of preventing and alleviating human suffering in the face of emergencies. Congratulations to ADT and all of their dedicated employees as they celebrate this milestone anniversary.”
