As part of Stanley’s mission to make communities and schools safer, the company is providing funding opportunities
for U.S. schools to receive security products and services through a $500,000 grant programme.

“We are proud to offer the Together For Safer Schools Grant Program to our nation’s schools,” states Chris Casazza, President Stanley Mechanical Solutions. “The safety of our children is a top priority at Stanley Security and this programme will help schools get the additional security solutions they need to become safer. Stanley remains committed to creating products that will continue to evolve the security of our schools allowing students and
faculty to place their focus on education.”

Beginning September 13 through October 28, school officials across the country can nominate their individual school for the grant programme online by visiting www.stanleysaferschools.com. Starting November 5, once nominations have been finalised, school administrators, staff, teachers, students, parents and the local community can vote daily
online, or by texting the school name to 99222, for the chance to win. The school with the most votes by December 13 will win $200,000 in Stanley Security installed products and services.

Three runners-up will each receive $100,000 in Stanley Security installed products and services. These products and services could include intruder classroom locks, traditional or audio intrusion systems, video surveillance, access control systems and more. Each vote also counts as an entry to win a daily “Safety To-Go Kit” from Stanley. The
kit includes a first aid kit, flashlight, safety vest and many other functional items that, in addition to being essential in the event of an emergency, are great safety educational tools for children. Winners will be notified in December 2013, and prizes will be awarded in 2014.
