Successful Northrop Grumman 2012 holiday giving campaign shows commitment to communities, those in need

REDONDO BEACH, Calif. – Employees of Northrop Grumman’s Aerospace Systems sector continued their tradition of bringing seasonal cheer to people in need during this year’s holiday giving campaign.

The company’s employee-driven program, active for more than 50 years, made the holidays easier by donating prepaid phone cards, new toys and gifts of food to communities around the nation where sector facilities are located.

Throughout the year, employees nationwide have participated in numerous ways, including fulfilling wish lists, hosting toy drives and holding a golf tournament.

“Through fundraisers of every stripe all year long, Northrop Grumman does all it can to support our communities,” said Gary Ervin, corporate vice president and president of Northrop Grumman’s Aerospace Systems sector. “Helping those in need is a big part of what it means to work at Northrop Grumman, and not just at the holidays. We give where we live.”

Employees participated at sites in California (Camarillo, Edwards Air Force Base, El Segundo, Goleta, Manhattan Beach, Palmdale, Redondo Beach and San Diego), Florida (Melbourne and St. Augustine), Georgia (Warner Robins), Maryland (Hollywood), Mississippi (Moss Point), New York (Bethpage), North Dakota (New Town), Oklahoma (Tinker Air Force Base) and South Carolina (Charleston).
