Mission 500 Challenge
Learning about Mission 500


Since 2007, the security industry’s Mission 500 initiative has sought to improve the lives of children, families and communities around the world. Recently, Anixter teams in Colombia, Mexico, Peru, Costa Rica, Argentina and Brazil mobilized to sponsor as many local area children as possible for a year.


To date, they have raised funds to support over 100 children.


In the U.S., our Tri-Ed team along with 20 vendor partners turned a recent North American Sales Meeting into a charity teambuilding event by filling backpacks with new school supplies to help 450 needy children. Mission 500 coordinated the event and delivered the backpacks to children throughout the United States.
