SVEC In the Community — February 2022

February 2022

Planting Something New

Suwannee Valley Electric Cooperative (SVEC) was happy to once again participate in Florida’s Arbor Day by giving out 150 tree saplings to the cooperative’s consumer-members. This year, the cooperative gave out native green ash trees like the one Kenneth Burke picked out for his home in Jasper.

The Gift of Life

Last month, the LifeSouth bloodmobile came by SVEC. The bloodmobile stops at the cooperative’s office four times a year. Since March 2004, SVEC employees have donated 736 units of blood out of compassion for their fellow community members. LifeSouth estimates that’s enough blood to save up to 2,208 lives.

If you would like to participate in the next blood drive, keep an eye on our Facebook and Instagram pages for announcements of upcoming visits.

SVEC on Parade

SVEC honored the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. at the parade held in his memory in Live Oak. Right-of-way Crewman Kevin Hines drove a bucket truck in the parade. His daughter, Kevionna, also joined him on the parade route.
