Mobile, Alabama (PRWEB) April 14, 2014

National home security company Protect America has announced its joint partnership with the University of South Alabama and participation in the charitable Pay It Forward program. The Company and University have joined together to help charities in Mobile, Alabama in a unique way. Pay It Forward spans the entire spring semester at the University of South Alabama, beginning in January and ending in May.

The Pay It Forward program is a philanthropic campaign funded and created by Protect America to aid local charities in university communities. University communications students, under the council of professors and Protect America marketing staff, are tasked with creating design work, social media strategy, public relations, advertising, or any communications tasks needed by the charities. Protect America representatives will travel to Mobile, Alabama in mid-April to attend the final presentations as well as meet the students and charities.

“There are two outcomes here,” says Protect America Corporate Communications Manager Tim Krebs. “Charities, who might not otherwise be able to afford it, receive help with their creative and communication needs. At the same time - university students create real work for their personal portfolios, which makes them more marketable in their job searches after graduation. Communication students at the University of South Alabama are extremely inventive and known for their work, which is an important factor in choosing partners for this project. The University of South Alabama has always sought to apply knowledge in service to the people of Alabama as citizens in a global community, and we’re delighted to join them in doing so.”

Protect America, a national home security and home automation corporation, strives to improve the quality of home and life. The company also wishes to help the next generation of professionals while aiding charities and nonprofits around the country.
