Company s Contribution to Aid the Greater Houston Area United Way in
DULLES, Va.Aug. 30, 2017--
Orbital ATK, Inc. (NYSE: OA), a global leader in aerospace and defense
technologies, announced today that the company is donating $100,000 to
the United Way of Greater Houston to aid in Hurricane Harvey relief
efforts in the area. The United Way of Greater Houston supports
emergency response organizations like the Red Cross, Salvation Army and
many others so they can act quickly in times of disaster.
Houston is known as America s Space City and the community has a
special connection with our company, said David Thompson, President and
Chief Executive Officer of Orbital ATK. It is the current or former
home of many Orbital ATK employees, as well as home base to thousands of
our industry colleagues at NASA s Johnson Space Center who need our
help. We are proud to partner with the United Way to provide direct
assistance to the organizations and people who need our support as they
help those affected by this devastating storm.
One of Orbital ATK s core values and guiding principles is support for
the communities in which we live and work, and the company s corporate
partnership with the United Way provides a way for employees to make an
impact by giving back. Orbital ATK begins its annual United Way campaign
on September 5 with a goal of raising $1 million for United Way chapters
across the U.S. In addition to corporate contributions, the company is
encouraging employees to consider pledging a portion of their 2018
contributions to the Greater Houston United Way.
"We are deeply grateful for the generosity of Orbital ATK and its
employees whose support will help United Way provide recovery assistance
to the thousands of individuals and families across our region that have
been devastated by Hurricane Harvey," said Anna M. Babin, President and
CEO of United Way of Greater Houston.
Orbital ATK employs over 200 people in Texas with offices in Houston,
Fort Worth and Palestine, carrying out important space and defense
programs for domestic and international customers.
