Northrop Grumman and the Sandtown Habitat for Humanity have presented the keys to the new owners of another house completed under a seven-year partnership centered on the Sandtown-Winchester community of Baltimore, Maryland.
The company said Wednesday this is the fifth house built by Northrop volunteers and the nonprofit housing organization, which was dedicated to new homeowner Kimberly Robinson during a ceremony last month.
Kay Rand, vice president of mission assurance for Northrop’s electronic systems segment, acknowledged the employees who have volunteered for the effort.
According to Northrop, at least 100 employees and their family and friends have spent more than 1,400 hours helping in the construction of the house over the past year.
The company has also donated more than $230,000 for the project over the course of the partnership with Sandtown Habitat for Humanity.
“Our mission is to improve the overall health of our community by increasing homeownership and eliminating all of the vacant and abandoned houses in Sandtown,” said LaVerne Stokes, the chapter’s co-executive director.
Northrop project leads Rob Siegel and Kurt Van Ryzin were also present during the May 17 dedication ceremony.
