Local Christmas light company employees Veterans

Top Stories

Christmas Lights by Veterans is a holiday decorating company that is owned and operated by service members. 

Leagha Spyvey, an Airforce Veteran, took over the business to help Veterans connect and earn money throughout the holidays. 

She said she understands from personal experience the challenges Veterans can face when returning to civilian life. 

But, not only does the group support Veterans, it also supports less fortunate children. 

Part of the proceeds the company receives will be donated to buy Christmas presents for children in need. 

The Veterans put up a wide range of decorations and light arrangements, and their prices vary from house to house, but Spyvey said they keep them as fair as possible. 

The company wants their business to grow so they can continue to support Veterans and needy children. 

They promise to help with not only installations, but maintenance and take down as well. 

Light installations for fellow service members are free of charge.
