Moorestown, N.J., 21-APR-05 -- Lockheed Martin recognized 213 employees for volunteering 22,689 hours of service throughout the Burlington County area in one calendar year.
The awards were presented at a luncheon during National Volunteers Week, which featured Walter Keiss, County Superintendent, and Joyce Campbell, Division Director for Catholic Charities Emergency Services, as guest speakers. Two employees had more than 1,000 volunteers hours, six had more than 500, and 39 had more than 100 hours of volunteer work.
“I am very thankful for the volunteers at Lockheed Martin,” said Keiss. “All of you touch children’s lives with the volunteering you do. Don’t stop volunteering; it is necessary and very much appreciated.”
Moorestown employees spent their time working to improve educational opportunities at great school across the county. They sponsored dozens of charitable organizations in the Burlington County area including United Way and American Cancer Society, among projects that support military organizations.
More than 22,000 hours of volunteer service is an outstanding achievement, said Carl Bannar, executive vice president of Maritime Systems & Sensors. The employees we are recognizing go above and beyond as matter of practice. Our communities benefit directly from our employees who give of themselves.”
