MCLEAN, Va. (Nov. 7, 2023) — HII’s (NYSE: HII) Mission Technologies division hosted its fourth annual Global Day of Caring on Saturday, Nov. 4. More than 400 employees and their family members completed 34 community service projects in Alabama, California, Florida, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New Mexico, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia and Washington.
“At HII, we are committed to delivering the advantage to our nation’s warfighters and to the communities where our 44,000 employees live and work,” said Andy Green, executive vice president of HII and president of HII’s Mission Technologies division. “I am proud to take part in another Global Day of Caring and to see so many Mission Technologies volunteers living HII’s values and helping those in need.”
Projects ranged from preparing care packages at the Unforgotten Haven in Blackwood, New Jersey, to building beds for the Agape Ranch in Corpus Christi, Texas, to helping the “heal the land” efforts at the Loko i‘a Pā‘aiau fishpond in Honolulu, Hawaii. More community service events are ongoing, including a virtual blood drive for the American Red Cross and local food drives.
“I loved the opportunity to volunteer and to support an initiative like this,” said Renee Neidigh, a talent acquisition representative who volunteered at Habitat for Humanity in Dayton, Ohio. “It is giving time, care and service to a purpose that is greater than ourselves and in turn helping our community.”
