Northrop Grumman employees volunteered their time to preserve and support African-American art, culture, entrepreneurship and economic development in Leimart Park Village in Los Angeles, Calif. This was all part of the most recent LA Works Day of Service, where more than 200 Northrop Grumman’s employees volunteered along with hundreds of other corporate volunteers.
The volunteers performed a variety of tasks including restoring historic tiles and crafting African drums for youth-oriented music programs and planting trees. Northrop Grumman employees have participated in every single LA Works Day of Service for the past 19 years.
“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 HR and administration for Northrop’s Aerospace Systems unit. “We’re proud of Northrop Grumman’s long tradition of employee volunteerism.”
The LA Works Day of Service is the longest-running day of corporate service in the city’s calendar. It’s a nonprofit, volunteer action center that creates and implements hands-on community service projects throughout the greater Los Angeles area.
