Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are unable to have our annual fall blood drive with the American Red Cross. We want to make sure that we are still living our values and vision to strengthen support in our communities by giving back to organizations that are supporting our communities through disaster. Even through COVID-19 protocols, The American Red Cross is responding to disasters, both big and small, each day.
From September 14th - 21st, we here at Leidos are raising money for disaster relief. Furthermore, you probably have heard news of Hurricane Laura that has slammed into the Louisiana coast as a catastrophic level 7 disaster while operation in Texas is a level 4. The storm has forced more than 1.5 million people evacuate their homes. The scope of destruction of Laura produced powerful winds caused unbelievable devastation to the infrastructure of communities along Louisiana’s coast, making it impossible for many families to safely return home. Red Cross volunteers and employees are working tirelessly - virtually and boots on the ground - to get immediate relief into people's hands and find them safe shelter.
