Atlanta’s Veterans Empowerment Organization empowers veterans along their journey to self-sufficiency through housing, optimal wellness, and workforce development. PEC+ has given to the organization in a variety of ways, just recently gifting them some bicycles for Christmas.
Not only is PEC+ involved in the community through all of our work helping to plan and build the greater Georgia area, but also we volunteer our time and passion to nonprofits in the community who share our mission of encouraging a better and more compassionate society.
Atlanta’s Veterans Empowerment Organization is one such nonprofit who possesses a passion to improve the lives of others. VEO empowers veterans along their journey to self-sufficiency through housing, optimal wellness, and workforce development.
An avid cyclist, President Ken Wood was introduced to VEO by members of his cycling team.
“From the moment I stepped onto VEO’s campus, I felt like I had an extra mission in my life that I could embrace and believe in. Helping coach veterans in need does my heart well,” says Wood.
Wood, along with his cycling team, began looking for ways to assist VEO, including promoting them through their cycling kits. In addition, PEC+ sponsored a room of their new construction facility. Now Wood is a board member of the organization, sponsoring them personally and professionally. This past holiday season, PEC+ served the veterans lunch and gifted them with some new bikes for their wellness program.
“It is vitally important to help our warriors in need,” says Wood. “These warriors stand for what we believe in and offer us the ability to live with freedom. We look forward to continuing to serve and help VEO grow reach their goals as an organization.”
