Security ONE Teams With Eric Ethridge and Buck 20 For May 15, 2020 Concert For Windsor Essex Food Banks Association
During these unprecedented times so many of us are at home alone. In addition, Self-Isolation and Social Distancing guidelines have led to layoffs for many.
Recognizing the vulnerable position this puts individuals and families in, who now must turn to food banks and agencies they otherwise wouldn’t have had to, Security ONE Alarm Systems has teamed with Canadian Country music star Eric Ethridge and Windsor’s Buck Twenty to host a live concert stream in support of the Windsor Essex Food Bank Association (WEFBA).
“Eric Etheridge is one of Country Music fastest rising stars,” says Corey Robertson, Manager of Community Partnerships at Security ONE and former Program Director at CHYR 96.7FM. “Both Eric and Buck Twenty were quick to yes when we approached them with this idea.”
WEFBA President June Muir says the need in the community is growing. “We’ve seen the registration of first-time user grow tremendously since the start of COVID,” she says. “We believe the long-term financial effects will be felt by families long after the economy opens back up.”
Robertson says giving back to the community is in Security ONE’s DNA. “We’ve been in the community since 1978. We are so grateful to the communities we serve, and felt we had a responsibility to help out during these unprecedented times,” he states.
