Ingalls Shipbuilding Collaborates with Salvation Army Children’s Program; Jenny Bailey Comments

Huntington Logo_ExecutiveBizIngalls Shipbuilding employees have adopted 145 angels from the Salvation Army’s Holiday Angel Tree program intended to provide holiday gifts to children.

Ingalls, a division of Huntington Ingalls Industries, also donated $1,500, a third of which is from the electrical department, to help the remaining angels who were not adopted, Huntington announced Dec. 20.

This year’s Angel Tree Program had over 1,5000 angels offered up for adoption.

“Without our Jackson County community and companies like Ingalls, we could not do what we do for these families,” said Capt. Jenny Bailey, Jackson County Salvation Army officer.

“Each angel receives at least $75 worth of merchandise, and because of Ingalls’ help, these families are going to be fully blessed this Christmas,” she added.

Additionally, the employees raised money and resources for other organizations such as the U.S. Marine Corps’ Toys for Tots program, Our Daily Bread and Backpack Buddies.

The company’s Veterans Employee Resource Team also sent 63 care packages to soldiers in Afghanistan.
