The Tioga County Open Door Mission would like to extend a huge thank you to the employees of Lockheed Martin Owego! On Friday June 5th a team of Lockheed Martin employees arrived bring 1913 pounds of food they had collected in just four days for the Tioga County Open Door Mission’s food pantries. Cans of soup, peanut butter, jelly and cans of tuna fish were just some of the many different foods that made up the 1913 pounds. This donations could not have been better timed with the opening of our new senior food pantry in Waverly, NY.
Not only did the Lockheed Martin employees come to the Mission bring food they also spent the afternoon volunteering doing a number of tasks throughout the Mission. From separating scrap metal to cleaning Barbie dolls, our Lockheed Martin volunteers were willing to help with anything they could. This is the second day of caring and food drive that Lockheed Martin employees have held for the Mission. We are always truly overwhelmed by their generosity and fun nature of our friends at Lockheed Martin every time they volunteer. Thank you Lockheed Martin Owego employees for your devotion to our community!
