Lockheed Martin employees donated more than 1,000 toys to fulfill 800 children’s requests for gifts through the annual Toy Drive in support of the Department of Children and Family Services as a way to make a positive difference in our local area, the Antelope Valley. Lockheed Martin and the LM Aero Club (employee-based organization) also donated $18,000 in support of the Toy Drive. “Our annual Toy Drive was a tremendous success, and I was overwhelmed by the generosity and thoughtfulness of our employees,” said Tony Borgia, director, Lockheed Martin Skunk Works. “It meant a lot to us all that we could make the holidays just a little brighter for the children of the Department of Children and Family Services, Antelope Valley.”
