Installation Operations employee, food drive volunteer is DLA Troop Support's Employee of the Month

By DLA Troop Support Public Affairs

Leonard Shannon is the Defense Logistics Agency Troop Support Employee of the Month for October. Shannon is a material handler for DLA Installation Support.

He recently oversaw the delivery of more than 500 new office chairs to DLA Philadelphia employees. And while doing so, he often helped employees make their workspace more ergonomic to minimize physical discomfort.

He’s been an integral part of DLA Philadelphia’s annual Fed Feed Families food drive. He’s volunteered the last three years to collect employee food donations daily from 11 locations on Naval Support Activity Philadelphia.

He also validates the expiration dates, weighs and packs the food, and then palletizes the donations for transport. Shannon helped collect 3,305 pounds of food that were donated to Philabundance, the Philadelphia area’s largest hunger relief organization.
