Northrop Grumman and USO Send Care Packages to Troops

Employee volunteers from Northrop Grumman teamed with the United Services Organization (USO) to provide 10,000 personal care packages for U.S. servicemen and women in Iraq, Afghanistan and other overseas locations. In May, more than 200 Southern California company employees churned out care packages containing personal items such as sunscreen, packaged body wipes, granola snacks, playing cards, prepaid phone cards, disposable razors and chewing gum. “As they do every year, Northrop Grumman employees have shown their commitment to U.S. troops with their eagerness to volunteer for the USO and its Operation Care Package program,” said Duke Dufresne, sector vice president and general manager of the Strike and Surveillance Systems Division of Northrop Grumman’s Aerospace Systems sector. Northrop Grumman employees nationwide have assembled hundreds of thousands of packages since the program began in 2003. The USO created the Operation Care Package program to help boost morale of American troops by showing them they have not been forgotten. During the recent event, Northrop Grumman also presented the USO with a check totaling $40,000 from employee fundraising activities to support the Bob Hope USO facility at Los Angeles International Airport.
