ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) -- The Exelon Company in Byron hands over a $1,000 check to the Veterans Drop-In Center in Rockford to help local veterans.
The money will help the center provide its most pressing needs for area veterans and ensure there are no gaps in the services provided.
"It's a place for everyone to come together," says Don Armbruster from the Exelon Corporation. "They have food, games, and it's just a laid back environment for people to let loose."
More than one-third of Exelon employees nationwide are veterans or active military members.
Byron and other stations offer an onsite employee resource group dedicated to veterans and raising money for local veterans organizations.
