BUFFALO, N.Y., Dec. 10, 2008 -- More than 220 employees, friends and family members showed their support for U.S. troops serving overseas as Northrop Grumman Corporation's (NYSE:NOC) Amherst Systems business unit hosted a United Service Organization (USO) Care Package Stuffing Event.
The original goal was to prepare 8,000 care packages; the final count was 10,375. The care packages will be shipped to troops serving in Afghanistan, Iraq and overseas locations. The Nov. 15 event marked Northrop Grumman's fourth care package stuffing party sponsorship this year.
