Northrop Grumman Team Lends Hands to Rebuild Community

Monday, February 06, 2006
A group of Northrop Grumman Corporation shipbuilders offered their construction skills to support rebuilding efforts in the Gulf Coast communities this week. These employees, who normally perform traditional shipbuilding crafts such as welding, pipefitting and shipfitting, framed doors, nailed floors and hung sheetrock in Jackson County, Mississippi's storm-damaged United Way headquarters. Assisting the United Way continues to be a top priority for Northrop Grumman. The corporation donated $250,000 to the local United Way group in south Mississippi and that money will be used as part of the organization's community impact grant program. Following Hurricane Katrina, Northrop Grumman Ship Systems sector's employees pledged $428,686 to United Way for its work in 2006. The United Way program's main purpose in 2006 will be to help the neediest residents recover from Katrina. A group of Northrop Grumman executives assisted in the cause this week, while visiting the Ship Systems sector on business. This group left their business meeting, changed into jeans and T-shirts and helped in the rebuilding of the community's United Way headquarters. The work group was organized by Northrop Grumman Ship Systems' new community relations council, which is committed to focusing volunteer recovery efforts by its shipbuilders all along the Gulf Coast. The group will tackle other community-restoration projects for the foreseeable future.
