LOS ANGELES, Aug. 3, 2011 -- More than 200 volunteers from Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE:NOC) spent much of last Saturday in Leimert Park Village to support community efforts to preserve and support African-American art, culture, entrepreneurship and economic development.
The Northrop Grumman employees joined hundreds of other corporate volunteers for the L.A. Works Day of Service on July 30. The volunteers performed a variety of activities, including restoring historic building tiles, crafting African drums for youth-oriented music programs and planting trees. They also helped revitalize the campus of Audubon Middle School by creating murals, painting buildings and planting flowers and shrubs.
"It's always gratifying to see so many people donate their time and effort to a project that improves the community," said Bob McNulty, vice president of Human Resources and Administration for Northrop Grumman's Aerospace Systems sector. "We're proud of Northrop Grumman's long tradition of employee volunteerism."
The L.A. Works Day of Service has a 19-year history, and Northrop Grumman employees have participated in nearly every one. Focused on support from companies and their employees, it is the largest and longest-running day of corporate service on the city's calendar. Volunteers from all parts of the city, civic organizations and leading companies join together to paint, plant and landscape to revitalize schools, parks and community centers.
L.A. Works is a nonprofit, volunteer action center that creates and implements hands-on community service projects throughout the greater Los Angeles area.
