To celebrate the holidays, Dynetics, a wholly owned subsidiary of Leidos, continued its volunteering and giving traditions during a challenging year.
In light of the highs and lows of 2020, extra holiday cheer felt imperative, the company said. “Dynetics wanted to make a greater community impact to finish-out a year affecting so many.”
As part of “The Twelve Days of Dynetics,” employees chose five charities to support. Each charity received a $10,000 gift totaling $50,000. The five organizations selected are:
- CASA of Madison County, or the Care Assurance System for Aging and Homebound, an organization enabling the aging and homebound to live at home independently, safely and with dignity.
- Kids to Love, a group that has touched the lives of more than 250,000 foster children since its incorporation in 2004.
- Make-a-Wish Alabama, a chapter of the non-profit that grants life-changing wishes to children with critical illnesses.
- National Alliance on Mental Illness – North Alabama, a local organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for people with mental illnesses, including their families.
- Still Serving Veterans, a team that serves and honors veterans and their families by making connections that lead to fulfilling careers, benefits and services.
Representatives from the organizations joined Dynetics Group President David King for a socially distanced check presentation outside the Dynetics corporate headquarters in Cummings Research Park.
