Protection Plus News Release
Toronto, January 17, 2018
As an important part of The Protection Plus belief in giving back to the community, a neighbouring charity, the Second Harvest Food Bank, was chosen to receive a Security Surveillance Camera installation at no charge. The Honeywell cameras, compliments of Honeywell Security Canada, were installed and activated by the Protection Plus installation team in May of 2017.
On December 16, 2017, the Second Harvest was the victim of a robbery, where batteries were stolen from their fleet of trucks. http://ow.ly/xE8x30hMTgJ. The thieves, however, were caught on video by the surveillance cameras with clear and helpful recorded images and timelines. The Toronto Police now have much needed evidence to apprehend these criminals to prevent a recurrence at Second Harvest or another vulnerable business.
Allan Baum, President of Protection Plus, said. “Every year on the anniversary of our incorporation we make a donation of our time, equipment and expertise in our community as a way of giving back. Clearly we are disappointed that anyone would target a charitable organization like Second Harvest. But we are pleased that the video images provide the Toronto Police with a much better opportunity to make an arrest and stop these perpetrators from further criminal activity.”

Protection Plus Volunteer Day 2017
May 26, 2017
In a friendly, but important challenge to the business community, Protection Plus® has issued a
challenge to other businesses, large and small, to use their incorporation date as an annual “Volunteer
Day.” What better way to mark the anniversary of business incorporation, than to give back to the
community that made success possible in the first place!
On Friday May 26th, Protection Plus will mark its’ 23rd year in business by volunteering at Second Harvest
Food Bank in Toronto. On Friday afternoon, all staff from Protection Plus will work with the Second
Harvest to sort, pack, and load food that is incoming and outgoing. In addition to the provision of labour
to assist in the daily challenges of running a Food Bank, Protection Plus will install a surveillance camera
system for Second Harvest. Honeywell Security Canada has graciously donated the camera and NVR
hardware for this project, and Protection Plus is donating the expertise and time of its’ installation team.
By Friday evening, Second Harvest will be a more secure facility!
Second Harvest Food Bank is a fantastic organization. It is the largest food rescue program in Canada.
Since 1985, Second Harvest has been picking up donated, surplus food, which would otherwise go to
waste, and delivering that food to community agencies in Toronto. Currently, Second Harvest delivers
rescued food to over 225 social service agencies. If you want to volunteer with them you can learn more
