Lockheed Martin Volunteers

Lockheed Martin provides a community grant to the charitable organization of an employee’s choice if that employee volunteers 250 hours in the year. They must go on line to the LM website and put Longhorn Council as the organization they volunteer for.  It is a great way.  Typically we have lots of volunteers that are volunteers in our units in Trinity Trails, Silver Star, Brazos Valley and now, Mustang. Other organizations that also do volunteer incentive grants are Exxon Mobile/ XTO, Verizon.  Many others will match the dollar amounts donated by employees, but this is just for volunteering their time.
