The rocket scientists at Orbital ATK had a little extra fun for a good cause on Friday. Dozens of employees at the firm’s Sterling campus brought their classic cars and hot rods to display for a staff car show. They also collected about 450 pounds of food donations for the Loudoun Hunger Relief food pantry.
Vicki Cox, the director of communications for the Orbital ATK Space Systems Group, said the event was designed to call attention to the needs of many area families, as well as a morale booster to get staff members out of their offices to socialize in a different atmosphere. Approximately 1,700 people work at the Sterling campus.
