Community Focus Newsletter Welcome Letter

Welcome to the latest issue of Community Focus, the Lockheed Martin Central Florida community relations newsletter. 

As we kick off the new year and all the opportunity it brings for continued involvement and advancement within our community, we also look back on the many accomplishments we reached together in 2017.  

We were proud to partner with the Heart of Florida United Way for our annual Month of Giving campaign, in which our employees donate their time, talent and treasure to bettering our community and the lives of those who live in it. Lockheed Martin’s contributions help the Heart of Florida United Way serve Osceola, Orange and Seminole Counties in four core areas – education, income, health and basic needs.

In a project to revitalize the community, nearly 1,000 Lockheed Martin volunteers completed more than 50 projects at the Central Florida YMCA Camp Wewa during our annual Day of Caring event. The work accomplished in a single day made the camp an even better place for children to enjoy for years to come.

We also continued supporting local educational needs with a particular emphasis on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). And we joined the Orlando community in fighting against Heart Disease in the Greater Orlando Heart Walk.

Natural disasters have made it a tough year for our community, but through the hardship we’ve come together and supported each other where needed. As we enter another year, Lockheed Martin volunteers will continue to step up to the challenge and give back. We look forward to working together to continue supporting our Central Florida community in 2018.
