[Atlanta, GA] – November 24, 2015 – During October at the Ackerman Security Systems Corporate Headquarters Ackerman donated over $1,200 to Northside Hospital Cancer Institute benefiting their Breast Care Program.

The proceeds were a result of the employees’ office campaign to bring awareness with the theme, “Paint Ackerman Pink”.  There was a finale held on October 31, 2015 which included weekly pink lemonade stands, bake sales, and memorabilia.

“It was very encouraging to see the energy and dedication displayed by our employees toward this cause. Many of our team members have been personally affected by breast cancer in one way or another” said Jim Callahan, President of Ackerman Security Systems.

“We are very grateful for the donation.  It is because of the support from companies like Ackerman that we are able to offer free mammograms and breast health screenings to our surrounding communities” said Susan Casella, RN, OCN Northside Hospital Cancer Institute.
