Thirty nine non-profit organizations nationwide received $930,000 dollars in social impact grants from L3Harris Technologies (NYSE:LHX) as part of the company's effort to provide relief to communities negatively impacted by COVID-19.
The L3Harris Foundation distributed grants of up to $25,000 to organizations in 19 states. The grant recipients applied for the funds to address a wide range of needs, including digital inclusion, food insecurity, veteran aid, mentorship for STEM students, economic opportunities for small businesses and others.
Company employees also are volunteering to assist other organizations through the company's LIFT program, which supports these and other initiatives throughout the year. "The pandemic has placed a tremendous strain on all facets of our society," said William M. Brown, Chairman and CEO. "The L3Harris Foundation social impact grants will help provide some relief to those in need – especially students, parents, communities and small businesses in areas where our employees work and live."
