Lockheed Martin Sponsors Touchdowns for Technology with the Philadelphia Eagles Radio Network
KING OF PRUSSIA, PA, 09/07/2001 -- Every time Merrill Reese calls a touchdown on 94WYSP this year, the children in the Philadelphia School district will benefit. Lockheed Martin has partnered with Eagles Radio 94WYSP in a program that will provide computers for under-resourced schools in Philadelphia through a sponsorship called Touchdowns for Technology. Lockheed Martin will donate two computers for every touchdown the Philadelphia Eagles score this year. In addition, Lockheed Martin's employee volunteer organizations will work with Eagles Radio to install the computers in the schools.
In the Delaware Valley, more than 11,000 dedicated Lockheed Martin employees volunteer thousands of hours each year working side by side with local organizations to improve our communities and schools.
The Eagles averaged 35 regular season touchdowns over the last ten years. However, excited about the team's prospects this year, Lockheed Martin is ready to donate up to 100 computers.
Eagles Radio is committed to working closely with Partners in Technology, a program of Philadelphia Cares. This unique program enables volunteers to bring technology into Philadelphia's most underprivileged neighborhoods. Philadelphia Cares created the Partners in Technology as another way to address the Greater Philadelphia region's critical needs through volunteer action. The program benefits communities by giving adults and children access to computers, to the Internet and to computer training. The primary focus is to enable others to build a brighter future through technology.
