Thanks to a generous contribution from CheckPoint Security, the Outer Banks Community Foundation has upgraded their office security.
Earlier this month, CheckPoint donated and installed a comprehensive security, fire alarm, and monitoring system for the Community Foundation’s historic flat top office in Southern Shores.
“We are incredibly grateful to Rodney and Clark Sawyer of CheckPoint for donating this state-of-the-art system,” said Lorelei Costa, Executive Director of the Community Foundation. “It’s so important that we protect the privacy of our donors, grantees, and scholarship students, and with this new system, our files and assets are even better protected.”
CheckPoint donated all equipment plus installation of the security, fire alarm, and monitoring systems.
The flat top cottage was built in 1953 and donated to the Community Foundation in 2007 by an anonymous donor, with the stipulation that the Community Foundation preserve and maintain the cottage and use it for a nonprofit office.
