Lockheed Martin donates $15,000 to Habitat for Humanity and help paint and trench a phase of new homes that are already sold to low income veterans.

Veterans are one step closer to moving into their new homes in Santa Clarita, Calif., thanks to Habitat for Humanity and Lockheed Martin employees.

In 2011, Habitat LA established Habitat for Heroes, an outreach initiative seeking to engage veterans, military members and their families in Habitat for Humanity’s mission. Since then, more than 4000 veterans have volunteered and nearly 100 have benefited from housing services.

Honorably discharged, low-income veterans may apply for a home and loan. Seventy-eight homes will be built in Centre Pointe Parkway in Santa Clarita. Those who purchased a home in phase one should be ready to move in July, 18.

“We are really proud to help support our veterans through Habitat and to be here working with the veterans that will actually be moving into these houses,” said Terri Garcia, of Lockheed Martin. “It is something we all believe in, that is why we are here.”
