Huronia Alarm & Fire Security Inc. makes $9500 donation in-kind to the Barbara Weider House, Home Horizons

Posted: March 8, 2017

Huronia Alarm & Fire Security Inc. was recently approached by Home Horizon Transitional Housing Services to provide the installation of a security system, multiple security cameras and lock products as part of the new Barbara Weider House being constructed in Collingwood. 

As long-time supporters of Barbara Weider and the work she did in the Southern Georgian Bay area, as well as a number of other local charities that support women and children in transition, Huronia responded with an offer to donate their time and security products at no cost to Home Horizon.

“We are grateful to Rob and Chris at Huronia Alarms for offering these much needed security products to us.  They will help ensure that the local youth who are living in this supportive environment feel safe and protected,” said Doris Sensenberger, Executive Director of Home Horizon.  “Huronia’s donation to the Barbara Weider House will help us to provide skills, counselling and housing to local at-risk youth.  These types of homes help bridge the gap between emergency shelter and independent living for a segment of our population that is traditionally overlooked.”

“Supporting local not-for-profit charities like Home Horizon is a natural fit for our corporate giving policy,” said Rob Thorburn Jr., Executive Vice President of Huronia Alarm & Fire Security Inc. “and especially the Barbara Weider House.  Barbara was such an influential member of our community and we worked with her on a number of charitable activities, so to provide help to a cause she would have cared so deeply about is reward in itself.”

Huronia Alarm & Fire Security Inc. has been in business for over 40 years and is Central Ontario’s leading provider of home and business security and monitoring services, CCTV, fire and safety, lock, key and safe products and services, home theatre, audio and video consultation and entertainment room design, as well as cabling and smart home wiring for today's home automation requirements.
