Our focus on health and human services supports disaster relief and programs that address critical local needs.
Northrop Grumman has a longstanding partnership with the American Cancer Society. Each year, hundreds of employees across the country participate in Relay for Life and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. To date, employees have raised approximately $2,000,000 for the American Cancer Society through these events.
As part of Hunger Action Month in September, employees support Rise Against Hunger by volunteering to create meal packs. These packs provide sustenance throughout the world in school food programs, orphanages and crisis relief efforts. Thousands of employees have volunteered their time and packed more than one million meal packs.
During natural disasters, our employees provide financial donations, collect essential items through drives, and donate blood. In addition, Northrop Grumman provides annual contributions to American Red Cross and Americares to assist with disaster relief efforts as they happen.
Northrop Grumman is a proud supporter of the American Red Cross' Annual Disaster Responder Program, which helps build a reliable funding base for disaster relief services. During a crisis or tragedy, our contributions help offset a range of expenses and ensure the Red Cross can rapidly respond when disaster strikes.

We are also an Americares Annual Emergency Response Partner. Their emergency response experts are among the first to respond and stay as long as needed, helping restore health services for survivors. Americares monitors disaster events around the world, conducts in-country needs assessments, pre-positions emergency medical and relief supplies and maintains emergency response expertise, capabilities and pharmacy inventories.
