Photo Release -- Newport News Shipbuilding Gives to Virginia Peninsula Foodbank

NEWPORT NEWS, Va., Dec 21, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE via COMTEX) -- Huntington Ingalls Industries (NYSE:HII) announced today that its Newport News Shipbuilding (NNS) division donated more than $23,500 and more than 31,000 pounds of non-perishable food to the Virginia Peninsula Foodbank during the shipyard's annual holiday food drive.

A photo accompanying this release is available at http://media.globenewswire.com/hii/mediagallery.html pkgid=16409 "We are fortunate to employ an extraordinary group of people at Newport News Shipbuilding," said Chavis Harris, NNS' director, EEO, diversity and corporate citizenship. "Each year we challenge our folks to give back to the community, and each year their generosity raises the bar. We are proud of their kindness and happy to support such a worthy cause." In addition to spurring generosity, the food drive sparked shipbuilders' competitive spirit and creativity. Food donations that were collected were stacked to build pyramids, Christmas trees and used to fill offices from desk to door.

"On behalf of the families and individuals who benefit from their support, we are proud to say thank you to the extraordinary individuals at the shipyard who are making a real difference in the lives of others and who are committed partners to the Foodbank of the Virginia Peninsula."
