WOODLAND HILLS, Calif. – Northrop Grumman’s Woodland Hills, Calif., facility recently donated more than 60 lightly used printers and copy machines to Value Schools, a nonprofit corporation that operates two charter schools in Los Angeles.

The printers will supplement existing machines or fill a void in school offices and classrooms that currently do not have printers.

“Northrop Grumman is dedicated to supporting our local schools,” said Liz Iversen, sector vice president and general manager of Northrop Grumman’s Navigation Systems division. “We are pleased that our donation will fill a pressing need in local schools and will help to improve students’ educational experiences.”

“Northrop Grumman’s gift of these printers is especially important as we face a reduction in state funding of our schools,” said Vanessa Navarro, director of communications of Value Schools. “This gift will help us provide students with the tools necessary to achieve success in school.”
