Community Service and Giving

The main goal of Lincoln Laboratory Community Outreach (LLCO) Community Service and Giving is to engage Lincoln Laboratory employees in activities to support worthy causes and contribute to the overall quality of life within and outside of our community. We strive to raise awareness to local needs by organizing fundraising and outreach events that support selected charity organizations. The LLCO tries to provide a diverse range of opportunities for employees to volunteer their time and resources. We support the follwing charitiies and/or events annually, and find new exciting opportunities to give to the community each year.

Support Our Troops - The Support Our Troops program has had such an overwhelming response, a separate page has been established. Please refer to LLCO's Support Our Troops page for an explanation of the program and a sample of thank you letters from recipients. Last year, more than 200 care packages were mailed to 17 different troops. If you would like to provide addresses of military service members to receive packages, please send the information to troopsupport@ll.mit.edu.
