Giving Back to Those Who Served
Lockheed Martin Employees Improve & Repair Homes of Veterans
Affording peace of mind to a veteran and their family is priceless, and in 2022, our employees have gotten to do just that.
Lockheed Martin employees have been teaming up with local chapters of the nonprofit organization Rebuilding Together through their Veterans at Home program to provide critical home repairs and accessibility modifications for Veterans in eight communities, with more projects to come in 2023.
In one project, the 82-year-old California homeowner and veteran was unable to make the improvements necessary for he and his wife to safely remain in their home. So, with a truckload of paint, tools and donated equipment, the Lockheed Martin volunteers spent a full day making the much-needed updates and even painted the whole house.
“It’s the most rewarding eight hours of hard work we’ve ever done,” said Scott, the lead volunteer for this project. “I’m also a member of the Lockheed Martin Military and Veterans Business Resource Group, so it’s doubly satisfying to see the impact we made on the safety and well-being of a deserving veteran and their family.”
In Florida, we provided a veteran family with a new roof. In Georgia, volunteers were able to install a mailbox and provide landscaping services for a veteran. In Texas, our volunteers repaired a military widow’s home. In Virginia, volunteers built a wheelchair ramp for a 93-year Korean War Army veteran. In Colorado, we made an Air Force veteran’s home more accessible so he and his wife can age in place. Watch:
