San Joaquin Leadership participates in OPERATION BACKPACK

By Annette Silva DLA Distribution Public Affairs

DLA Distribution San Joaquin, California, senior leadership partnered with veterans groups from Sandia and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory to support military children from Travis Air Force Base and Camp Parks through OPERATION BACKPACK. The San Joaquin team took the opportunity to sponsor two kids from Travis.

“We [veterans group] are gathering donated school supplies and backpacks to help these kids start their school year off right,” said Angela Tallman, veterans group member.

The San Joaquin leadership team rallied together and provided monetary donations to purchase the items on the kids’ back-to-school wish list. The items included all necessary school supplies and a brand new backpack.

The San Joaquin team takes pride in giving back to the community. Further, providing help to our military children is extremely rewarding.
