NORTH CANTON, Ohio, 2015-12-11 — /EPR Retail News/ — Diebold, Incorporated (NYSE: DBD) has donated $5,600 to The Friends of Flight 93 National Memorial. The donation was a result of a charitable feature integrated into Diebold’s tradeshow booth at the recent 2015 ASIS International Seminar & Exhibits. For each person that visited the booth, Diebold pledged to donate two dollars to The Friends of Flight 93 National Memorial, which is the official charitable partner of Flight 93 National Memorial.
“We thank Diebold so much for their very generous contribution. Through committed, strong partners like them, we continue our efforts to honor the 40 passengers and crew members of Flight 93 by connecting people to this special place; educating future generations about Flight 93 and September 11, 2001; and caring for this National Memorial,” said Henry C Scully, executive director, Friends of Flight 93 National Memorial.
The Friends of Flight 93 include family and friends of the passengers and crew of Flight 93, people nationwide who have been inspired by their acts of courage, and many residents of Western Pennsylvania who want to be part of the mission in a hands-on way. The organization focuses on awareness, education, volunteer support, preservation and stewardship.
“Diebold Security is extremely proud to contribute to The Friends of Flight 93 National Memorial,” said Tony Byerly, executive vice president, electronic security, Diebold. “We are honored to bring more awareness to Flight 93 National Memorial and assist in the endeavor to educate future generations about the Flight 93 story, maintain the highest standards of care for the memorial and provide meaningful experiences for its visitors.”
