The Drive for Veterans is a small convoy of zero-emission, lowspeed electric vehicles driving across the country to raise money for charities that support wounded veterans. They will be making appearances at events and celebrations along the way to promote support for wounded veterans and generate funds to reach their goal of $500,000.
Plans are earnestly being made to enjoy the Christmas season all along the Louisiana Holiday Trail of Lights — Shreveport-Bossier, Minden, Monroe-West Monroe, Natchitoches and Alexandria/Pineville. Starting Nov.
In addition to getting a good breakfast, guests can join Crime Stoppers in supporting the Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana so they can provide for the needs of others during this often stressful time of year. Supporters are asked to bring a non-perishable food item with them to the breakfast.
“The holiday season is a time when we often let down our guard and typically don’t pay as much attention to our surround dings while out and about shopping and visiting friends and family,” said Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington.
