One of The Leaven’s proudest partnerships is our close partnership with the US Military and Travis Air Force Base. Our fighting men and woman give so much to our country and yet are always so willing to give even more to our community, helping to serve their neighbors and make local communities stronger.
As part of their commitment to the community, members of Travis Air Force Base have given their time to help us prepare centers and deliver Valentines to Troops stationed abroad, and they have made Christmas bright for local boys and girls through their Angel Tree program.
Recently, Mark Lillis, our Executive Director, was invited to join a very select group of Civic Leaders to represent Travis Air Force Base. This group, under the leadership of General Everhart, Commander of the Air Mobility Command, traveled to Scott Air Force Base in Saint Louis to bring together local community leaders to explore mutual areas of interest and help increase public understanding of the military. It was also a great opportunity for the members to network and share their organizations’ successes, building more ties within the community.
We are honored to be a part of this special group and to share the amazing work of The Leaven with them. It’s one way we strengthen our friendship with our local military because together we can help kids and communities rise.
