Technology Tops Christmas List for Linwood Center School
Linwood Center School children benefit from the generous contributions of the Northrop Grumman Employee Christmas Project. The Christmas Project employees contributed in excess of $8,500 to the Linwood Center School program. Technology was at the top of the Christmas list for Linwood Center School children when the Northrop Grumman Employee Christmas Project arrived at Linwood just before Christmas. Apple iPads with protective cases were among the numerous contributions from NG Christmas Project. Santa’s gift list included communication assistance software and sensory integration tools which enhance sensory integration and the development of motor skills. Technology integration has been shown to improve communication, assist in the development of social skills, and enhance the ability to learn for individuals with autism. Each of the 36 children enrolled at Linwood School received a stocking full of goodies and a Ravens logo backpack from the NG employees.
Donations from employees at Northrop Grumman Corporation’s Linthicum-based Electronic Systems sector helped make the holidays brighter for hundreds of area residents in need through several volunteer efforts. Now in its 48th year, The Christmas Project is funded by monetary donations that are used to purchase items requested by organizations for their residents.
