Transforming Our Communities

Message to Our Communities

Mike Petters with Pre-K students

Children whose parents received pre-K school readiness education scholarships through HII’s Scholarship Fund meet HII President and CEO Mike Petters.

At Huntington Ingalls Industries, we make it a point to highlight our employees who volunteer in the communities where we operate. Through their work, these volunteers embody our corporate motto of “Hard Stuff Done Right,” and they prove, every day, that HII produces much more than the ships we build and the services we provide.

Each year, HII employees enthusiastically collaborate to support hundreds of organizations, lending their time and talents to make their respective communities places where others want to live and work.

Because of these men and women, countless children learn how to read, homeless shelters are staffed on cold winter nights and homes are built for families in need. This selflessness is a part of HII’s culture, and it’s written in our DNA.

Last year, HII contributed nearly $6 million in charitable giving to the communities where we operate. After the tragic shooting at the Virginia Beach Municipal Center, Newport News Shipbuilding and Technical Solutions teamed up to contribute $50,000 to a relief fund to help survivors, families of the deceased and first responders with their needs in the aftermath. Their contribution was made in recognition of the nearly 1,500 HII employees who live in the city where the incident took place.

“ Our employees’ efforts are a testament that HII and its divisions are committed to the continuous improvement and transformation of our communities.”As a company, HII contributes to various charitable programs — from education to health and human services to the arts — and we sponsor events that benefit the American Red Cross, Habitat for Humanity and Special Olympics. Last year, HII employees pledged over $1.1 million to the United Way and other nonprofit organizations that support a wide range of charitable organizations and agencies across the country.

Our employees’ efforts are a testament that HII and its divisions are committed to the continuous improvement and transformation of our communities. They are examples of
the deep-rooted culture found at HII: a culture that provides a mutually beneficial relationship with its suppliers, a culture that gives back while still meeting the expectations of its shareholders and a culture dedicated to delivering products of exceptional quality to its customers.

I hope you will take the time to look through the pages of this “Report to the Community” and find the names of family, friends and neighbors you may know. Thank them
for their contributions, and consider joining them as a proud volunteer.
