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!
