Project LOVE Louisiana Department of Veterans Affairs
COVID-19 has affected all Louisianans, and the veterans at the state’s five veterans’ homes are no exception. These heroic men and women are missing interaction with family and friends as visitation remains closed for their safety. Despite the challenges, they say something good comes from every situation, and in this case, it’s Project LOVE.
On July 1, the Louisiana Department of Veterans Affairs launched Project LOVE (Love Our Veterans Every day), an initiative to show veterans our love and support, especially during the current pandemic. The project asks Louisianans to write to the more than 600 veterans who live in the state-run veterans’ homes. Our veterans are among our state’s and nation’s most priceless treasures, and writing a letter to show we care is a small token of appreciation for their service and sacrifice.
Louisianans can address their letters to Project LOVE and send them to one or more of our five veterans homes. The homes’ addresses are as follows:
Louisiana Veterans Home
4739 Highway 10
Jackson, LA 70748
Northeast Louisiana Veterans Home
6700 Highway 165 North
Monroe, LA 71203
Northwest Louisiana Veterans Home
3130 Arthur Ray Teague Parkway
Bossier City, LA 71112
Southeast Louisiana Veterans Home
4080 W. Airline Highway
Reserve, LA 70084
Southwest Louisiana Veterans Home
1610 Evangeline Road
Jennings, LA 70546
This project will continue throughout the summer. For information on the number of residents at each home, or any other questions regarding Project LOVE, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 225.219.5005.
