GAFFNEY — As Veterans Day approaches, Broad River Electric wishes to not only honor the sacrifices made by the men and women who have protected our freedoms, but also to recognize those who are currently serving in the military.
Broad River Electric will send a care package to cooperative members or family members who are currently deployed in the U.S. military. Each package will also contain a personal note from a Broad River Electric employee expressing appreciation for their service. The care packages will be mailed the week of Veteran’s Day, November 11.
Cooperative members who would like for a member of their family to receive a package can visit the Broad River Electric website at www.broadriverelectric.com and click on the “Co-op Care Packages” link to fill out the online form. The deadline to register a service member is November 3.
Members without access to the website may call 866-687-2667 and register a soldier with a Broad River Electric Member Service Representative. Please provide full name, rank, and proper mailing address.
Parents, grandparents, and siblings of a service member may register them to receive the care package. Multiple family members can receive a care package, but only one package per individual.
