9/11 Memorial Day
The September 11th Memorial Ceremony is a proud Pelco tradition where our local agencies come together in commemoration of the anniversary of September 11, 2001. Every year, we recognize the many heroic sacriﬁces that were made on this day. The solemn and respectful ceremony is held at the California Memorial—a permanent monument on the Pelco by Schneider Electric Clovis campus.
Committed to Our Local and Global Communities
Pelco has a long tradition of helping those in need. As an essential part of our corporate culture, our community outreach is oﬃcially organized under the Schneider Electric Community Partnership Program.
We have established an ongoing relationship with Mission 500 and the American Red Cross as our primary charities. To maximize the impact of our giving, we currently do not accept requests from organizations other than these charities.
Mission 500 & World Vision
Mission 500 is part of World Vision, a humanitarian organization dedicated to children, families and communities worldwide and serving the needs of the less fortunate. Mission 500 is focused on channeling the eﬀorts of those of us in the security industry to help needy children and communities throughout the world by providing a sustained ﬂow of food, clothing, and education to those children who might otherwise be malnourished, diseased, or without the necessary skills to provide for themselves and families. Pelco is proud to have Mission 500 as our ﬂagship charity.
Red Cross is part of the world’s largest humanitarian network with 13 million volunteers in 187 countries. Working together to help respond to disasters and build safer communities, each year Red Cross reaches an average of more than 100 million people across the globe.
Starting back in 2005 with 500 students in attendance, Pelco Education Kids Day has nearly tripled in the number of students, support staﬀ and families attending. The most recent Kids Day took place on May 11, 2018. More than 1,300 students and 800 support persons showed up at the Fresno County Fairgrounds to enjoy a day of fun, laughter and memories.
Pelco sponsors this amazing event for students with moderate to severe disabilities so they can have greater access to resources while also celebrating those with disabilities as important members within the community. Thanks to everyone who has participated over the years and all the classrooms that have shared their memories with us. Hope to see you all out there next year!
