Northrop Grumman and a Baltimore area chapter of nonprofit housing organization Habitat for Humanity dedicated two homes over the weekend that company employees helped build.
Constance Soloway, vice president of human resources for Northrop’s electronic systems sector, and project leads Andrew Clark and Rob Siegel handed the keys to Daniel Smith and Brenda Eubanks and their families at a dedication ceremony held this weekend, the company said Monday.
More than 400 Northrop employees, their families and friends spent over 3,500 hours of volunteer work with Habitat’s Sandtown chapter over the past year.
“As a neighborhood-based organization, 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 Michael Barb, co-executive director, Sandtown Habitat for Humanity, noting Northrop’s contribution.
“At the same time, we collaborate with community partners to build bridges from our community to the surrounding region,” Barb said.
Northrop said it has provided funds of more than $190,000 for the housing project since 2007.
