SALT LAKE CITY, Dec. 9, 2009 -- Employee volunteers from Northrop Grumman Corporation's (NYSE:NOC) Navigation Systems Division facility here recently sponsored a holiday dinner for 150 local families whose children are members of the Lied Boys & Girls Club.
Held at the Lied Boys & Girls Club, the dinner was donated and served by Northrop Grumman employee volunteers, who also presented each child in attendance with a holiday gift as part of the outreach event.
"Community outreach is an important part of our culture at Northrop Grumman, and we enjoy working with the Lied Boys & Girls Club," said Terry Simms, an operations manager at Northrop Grumman who helped organized the event.
