Lockheed Martin is committed to supporting those on the front lines of any battle, including COVID-19. As we adapt to our new normal it’s our goal to recognize those who go above and beyond.

Supporting the Fight Against COVID-19
In North Texas, we contributed a total of $2.1 million to COVID-19 relief efforts. Grants to JPS Hospital in Fort Worth and Parkland Hospital in Dallas ensure front-line healthcare providers have the medical supplies they need to perform their jobs safely.
JPS Hospital Foundation is using their $500,000 gift to leverage the use of technology to combat the spread of COVID-19 and its long-term effects on the most vulnerable members of our community. Parkland Foundation, which is one of the largest public hospital systems in the country, is using the $400,000 donation to help care for COVID-19 patients, properly equip caregivers with personal protective equipment and order supplies and other equipment to keep up with demand.
Additionally, we donated over $558,000 to food banks, shelters and other local health and human services organizations.
