Southwestern Electric Power Co. (SWEPCO), an American Electric Power company, delivered approximately 50 boxes of donations Monday from across Caddo and Bossier parishes to Woody’s Home for Veterans in Shreveport.
Woody’s Home for Veterans, located at 442 Jordan Street, provides a stable home environment for veterans in need of continued psychiatric care.
This marks the third year that SWEPCO, an employer of more than 315 veterans, has collected nonperishable food items and toiletries from across Shreveport, Haughton, Vivian and Bossier City for the nonprofit.
“It feels good to know we’re here as a company to give back to these men and women in the Armed Forces who sacrificed their time and lives,” said Distribution System Supervisor Tony Ailstock of Shreveport.
SWEPCO’s Military Veterans Employee Resource Group (MVERG) leads the drive each year.
