During the holiday season, Lockheed Martin Central Florida employees come together to support Toys for Tots. Volunteers collect monetary and toy donations, then purchase bicycles, helmets and additional toys for Orange County and Seminole County children in need.

For more than 67 years, the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program has been collecting new, unwrapped toys and distributing them as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community. Locally, the program provides the joy of Christmas and a message of hope to 30,000 children in Orange and Seminole counties.

This year, employees across Lockheed Martin Central Florida locations donated approximately $30,000 which allowed them to buy 247 bikes, 40 wagons, carts, and razor scooters and nearly 900 toys.
