BUCKLEY AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. - -- Team Buckley, along with other sponsoring agencies held a Family Fun Giveaway Day at the Leadership Development Center April 30.
"The partnership between the Integrated Delivery System for Team Buckley, which is a group of helping agencies on base, united with the USO to provide a day full of educational learning as well as a giveaway day," said Ms. Patricia Pope, Section Chief, Airman and Family Readiness.
In honor of sponsoring the month of the Military Child, festivities, such as food and clothing giveaways, along with different kind of toys for children to play with were used to support this program.
"We felt that the Fun Day was a huge success," said Ms. Pope. "We had a great deal of people turn out. We estimated that there were more than 400 people that showed up."
This event was held for all service members, family members, retirees, as well as Department of Defense civilian employees.
"One of the purposes we had this for event was to help people become more aware of the agencies available to them, and talk with the counselors," said Ms. Pope. "I feel we were successful in doing so."
