‘Tis the season of giving: federal employees spread holiday cheer to students

By Shaun Eagan DLA Troop Support Public Affairs

The Defense Logistics Agency Troop Support celebrated the holiday season with local elementary school students during the annual Children’s Holiday Party Dec. 12.

Approximately 25 employee volunteers spent a few hours delivering presents donated by the DLA Troop Support workforce, making ornaments and playing holiday-themed games with 161 Benjamin Franklin Elementary School kindergarten and first-grade students to spread the holiday spirit. The volunteers also provided six classrooms with a container filled with classroom supplies.

To make the Children’s Holiday Party a success, about 75 volunteers from around the workforce collected toys, wrapped presents and prepared activities throughout a two-month planning process.
