Distribution’s Barr delivers holiday donations to Lebanon VA Medical Center

By DLA Distribution Public Affairs DLA Distribution

Defense Logistics Agency Distribution’s Domon Barr, a supply management specialist with the Material Management Division, delivered holiday donations to the Lebanon Veterans Administration Medical Center Dec. 11.

Barr, a veteran himself, spends his off-duty time volunteering as a committee chair/community liaison for the Blacks in Government Region III New Cumberland-Susquehanna, Pennsylvania, Military Veterans Emphasis Program. Barr draws on fellow Distribution employees throughout the year for their generous donations to the BIG Covers Vets Campaign during the holiday season.

This year, Barr delivered over 200 lap, afghan and throw blankets, toiletries, non-perishable food snacks, books, word puzzles, playing cards and socks. In addition, the MVEP chapter provided a check for $2000 to go toward the Lebanon VA’s general purpose fund and Outpatient Behavioral Health Clinic.

The MVEP serves as an internal consultant to BIG and promotes the use of the Veterans Administration and community programs, benefits and services for BIG military veterans and their family members. In addition, MVEP makes recommendations to the National Executive Committee that will better serve military veterans and their families.

BIG MVEP provides interpersonal and online information and support to BIG's military veterans and their families that create more effective pathways to military veteran-oriented resources provided by local and national government/commercial/private organizations by fostering synergies that help ensure BIG military veterans and families maximize military veteran-oriented resources and services.
