For the second consecutive year, DynCorp International is a proud sponsor of the USO of Metropolitan-Washington (USO-Metro)’s Operation Back to School program. This program provides backpacks complete with school supplies to approximately 4,000 local military children in kindergarten through fifth grade.
This year, in addition to participating as a corporate sponsor, DI has donated a calculator for each backpack. School supply drives at their Falls Church and Alexandria, Va., offices will collect additional supplies for the program.
DI team members will volunteer to help stuff the thousands of backpacks after all supply donations are fulfilled, then help distribute at a special Back to School event being held August 3, 2013, at the Fort Belvoir USO Center.
A Continuing Partnership
As a four-star corporate partner, DI supports USO-Metro’s programs, events and services that support military troops and their families in the Washington, D.C., Maryland and Northern Virginia area.
