HOLLYWOOD, Md. (Feb. 5, 2008)—The Greenwell Foundation announced the receipt of a donation of $3,200 from the Northrop Grumman Corp. The company presented the foundation with a $2,000 sponsorship for Greenwell's Vacations for Vets Program. Northrop Grumman employees also donated $1,200 from their Christmas Giving campaign.

Vacations for Vets is a respite program which offers disabled veterans and their families no-cost weekend stays at the fully accessible Knott Lodge in Hollywood, Md.

"Northrop Grumman has been a longstanding supporter of the Greenwell Foundation and its programs," said Kendall Sorenson-Clark, executive director of the Greenwell Foundation. "We are pleased that they have increased their support with a sponsorship for the Vacations for Vets program. It will help ensure that we can provide four weekends this year for our veterans and their families."

Greenwell anticipates serving at least 24 service members and their families in 2008.

The Greenwell Foundation is a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization dedicated to providing universally accessible and inclusive programs, services and facilities for all community members in Southern Maryland.

The Greenwell Foundation says it is continuing to seek both individual and corporate support through volunteer work, and monetary and in-kind donations.
