Southwestern Electric Power Company

Dear Friends,

At Southwestern Electric Power Company (SWEPCO), our commitment to the communities we serve extends beyond our mission to provide safe, reliable and affordable energy. We believe in being part of the community.

Our employees have donated thousands of hours to countless organizations and community programs. SWEPCO and our parent company, American Electric Power, strive to make an impact by helping to fund organizations and programs that improve education, feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, care for our environment, grow our communities and much more.

For example, SWEPCO and the AEP Foundation supported Children’s Advocacy Center of Benton County in Arkansas, which provides a safe place for child abuse victims and their families. The organization offers comprehensive services from dedicated professional interviews, nurses, counselors and advocates in a child-friendly atmosphere.

In Louisiana, SWEPCO and the AEP Foundation supported the United Way of Northwest Louisiana’s Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library program, which fosters a love of reading for children from birth to age five, and helps prepare them for kindergarten success. Through Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, one book is delivered each month directly to the home of children enrolled in the program all at zero cost to the child’s family. In addition, several employees took part in the United Way Virtual Volunteer Reading Series that featured children’s books from the program.

SWEPCO and the AEP Foundation also supported the Meals on Wheels Ministry, Inc. in East Texas, which delivers daily meals to over 2,500 homebound senior citizens and disabled individuals covering six counties in East Texas. We also provided funding to several food banks across our service territory to assist those affected by the COVID crisis.

We’re pleased to share the following report that highlights how SWEPCO and its employees give back to the communities in which they live and work. And, we’re thankful for the privilege to work alongside you today as we light the way for a brighter tomorrow.
