Trigate Development donates $50K to Surrey Crime Prevention Society

SURREY — Trigate Development Corporation has donated $50,000 to Surrey Crime Prevention Society.

The society says the gift is the single largest individual donation in the history of the city that is solely dedicated to enhancing community safety.

“With the on-going challenges rapidly growing cities face, Surrey needs those of us who have built our businesses here to step up and do our part in preventing crime and building a stronger community,” said Trigate president and CEO George Tsakumis.

SCPS executive director Karen Reid Sidhu thanked the company for the donation.

The society recently announced program expansion to include additional days and areas in Surrey, and says the gift will make it possible.

“Their gift will enable us to expand our programs and ensure the safety of our volunteers by purchasing new equipment,” said Reid Sidhu.

She noted SCPS volunteers contributed more than 28,000 hours in Surrey in 2014.
