KEITHVILLE, LA (KSLA) -
A generous donation to the Northwest Louisiana Veterans Cemetery will help keep families and friends cool during services and other programs in the heat of the summer.
The Shreveport Alumnae Chapter, of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., donated two 30" barrel fans Thursday, June 21.
The chapter felt compelled to donate after attending the cemetery's annual Memorial Day Program, and saw a need that could provide comfort.
"We are committed to serving our Veterans and their families", said Soror Kay Proby-Waller, Chairperson of the Chapter's Community Involvement Committee.
This donation was also made in honor of the late Hazel Johnson Brown, the first African American female General to serve in the United States Army, and Marcelite J. Harris, the first African American female General to serve in the Unites States Air Force.
"We are appreciative of this donation on behalf of the families, and Veterans that we serve here at the Northwest Louisiana Veterans Cemetery", said NWLA Veterans Cemetery Director, Kenneth R. Epperson.
