Northrop Volunteers Send Thousands of Packages to U.S. Troops

Northrop Grumman employees in the Washington D.C. area pitched in together with the United Service Organization to assemble 7,000 care packages for U.S. troops.

The ‘stuffing party’ took place at Fort Belvoir on Oct. 22 and also included family members of the Northrop employees. The two-gallon ziplock bag packages contain international calling cards, toiletries and entertainment items.

“The enthusiastic, dedicated group of volunteers here today reached a milestone in Northrop Grumman’s support to this incredibly important program over the past eight years: We filled our 300,000th care package,” said John R. Landon, Northrop Grumman’scorporate vice president.

Northrop has hosted numerous stuffing parties since partnering with the USO in 2003.
