Raytheon will hold a series of volunteering events between April 21 and April to honor employees who have spent nearly 400,000 hours of their personal time for volunteer projects during the past two years.
The company is participating in National Volunteer Week to feature contributions of its employees to individuals and organizations, Raytheon said Thursday.
