"APXGives Back" Launches New Fund Raising Program to Help Families During the Holidays
PROVO, Utah -- APX Alarm Security Solutions Inc., one of the nation's largest residential security alarm companies, announced today it is launching a community donation challenge to assist up to 250 families in financial need during the holiday season.
As part of its "APX Gives Back" initiative, the company has partnered with The United Way of Utah County, Sub for Santa program and The Daily Herald to help raise $25,000 in the community before December 12, 2008. APX has agreed to match every dollar up to $25,000 for a grand total goal of $50,000. Every dollar collected will go towards families and children assistance identified by Sub for Santa.
"The number of families and children impacted by economic hardship is skyrocketing all around us," said Josh Houser, Vice President of Service and Inside Sales. "This campaign is consistent with our goal as a company - to protect and help families."

"We're grateful for the families and companies like APX who are willing to step in and give gifts to many children in our community who otherwise would not receive a Christmas. Because of the kindness and generosity of groups last year, Sub for Santa was able to provide Christmas for more than 5,000 children in Utah County," said Kiera Staples, Sub for Santa Director.
