Lockheed Martin Supports Hurricane Relief Efforts with $1 Million Donation
BETHESDA, Md., Sept. 30, 2022 – Lockheed Martin is committing $1 million to support communities devastated by Hurricanes Fiona and Ian, which will expand access to shelters, accelerate debris removal, provide food and personal items to students and teachers, and enable the delivery of other supplies and resources to those in need following the massive storms.
“Lockheed Martin has a long-standing presence in Florida and Puerto Rico, both of which play a fundamental role in our nation’s security efforts,” said Lockheed Martin Chairman, President and CEO James Taiclet. “We are committed to helping these communities in their time of need and all those who are suffering from the impacts of these storms.”
- The American Red Cross
$910,000 is being donated to the American Red Cross, an organization that is already on the ground working to provide shelter, meals, aid kits and emergency responses to those in affected areas.
- All Hands and Hearts Smart Response Inc.
$50,000 is being donated to the Disaster Assessment Response Team (DART) of All Hands and Hearts, a non-profit that is coordinating with state and federal agencies to support the community over the next 12-month period.
- Heart of Florida United Way Hurricane Ian Recovery Fund
$35,000 is supporting the Heart of Florida United Way Hurricane Ian Recovery Fund for the health, financial, and education needs of Central Florida in their time of need. Over the years, this fund has supported millions of people through hurricane disaster relief, as well as long-term health and service agencies.
- University of Puerto Rico Mayagüez Come Colegial Food Bank
$5,000 will be allocated to this local food bank in Puerto Rico. Through this initiative, the University of Puerto Rico is providing food and resources to students and families who were significantly impacted by Hurricane Fiona. This organization helps to support underprivileged students year-round, but is ramping up their efforts to focus on disaster relief.
In addition, Lockheed Martin has activated its Employee Disaster Relief Fund to assist employees residing in declared major disaster zones in Florida and Puerto Rico.
As a company, Lockheed Martin will continue to engage state and local leaders to help strengthen the resilience of communities where our employees call home – and which are critical to national security missions.
