Military Bowl To Complete A Year Of Robust Northrop Grumman Nationwide Giving To The USO

FALLS CHURCH, Va., Dec. 21, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE:NOC) employees are committed to giving back to those who have given so much to defend our nation. This commitment was on display across the nation in 2012 through a range of employee volunteer efforts, charitable contributions and funded programs all done on behalf of the USO.

"Supporting the USO and the excellent work it does for men and women in uniform, wounded warriors and veterans is deeply important to Northrop Grumman and our employees," said Sandra Evers-Manly, vice president of corporate responsibility and president of the Northrop Grumman Foundation. "Our corporate engagement with the USO was reinforced in 2012 and will be capped by our sponsorship of the Military Bowl benefitting the USO, this December."

The Military Bowl presented by Northrop Grumman will feature the Bowling Green Falcons and the 24th-ranked San Jose State Spartans at Washington, D.C.'s historic RFK Stadium. Kickoff is set for 3 p.m. Eastern time on Dec. 27. The game, which will raise at least $100,000 for the USO, will be televised nationally on ESPN for the fifth straight year. Tickets for the 2012 Military Bowl presented by Northrop Grumman are on sale now. Ticket prices start at $25.

Northrop Grumman has had a longstanding relationship with the USO and was the first corporate supporter of Operation USO Care Package. Since 2003, the company and its employees have donated resources, time and more than $1 million in support of the care package program.

Employees creatively and enthusiastically supported USO in various ways in 2012, including:
  • Employees from the South Bay area of Southern California raised more than $100,000 from the El Segundo and Redondo Beach sites. San Diego employees raised $73,000; some of those funds sent children grieving the loss of a loved one to a special summer camp. The sites also presented a donation of more than $100,000 to the Bob Hope Hollywood USO Center at Los Angeles International Airport.
  • Volunteers at the Palmdale, Calif., manufacturing center and the St. Augustine, Fla., manufacturing center each put together 5,000 care packages for service members. Palmdale donations for the USO totaled $60,000, and donations from St. Augustine and Melbourne, Fla. reached $15,000 in 2012.
  • Bethpage, N.Y., volunteers assembled dozens of bicycles, complete with bows and personal notes, for children of active military personnel, and presented them during Fleet Week in May. Employees at the site contributed nearly $24,000 this year.
  • Volunteers at the Rolling Meadows, Ill., campus put together 7,750 care packages for service members.
  • Volunteers from the company's Charlottesville, Va., facility stuffed more than 10,000 care packages to be delivered to deployed service members.

In addition to nationwide USO fundraising activities, the company sponsors the USO Airport Lounge for military travelers at Washington Dulles International Airport and other airports around the country.
