STEELTON, Pa. — A Dauphin County church offered their thanks to local veterans Saturday.

Beulah Baptist Church in Steelton held its first Veterans Community Outreach Day. Volunteers offered help in counseling services and resume writing for job seekers.

Representatives from Veterans Affairs were on hand to make veterans aware of services which they could be taking advantage.

“We really want to help our veterans. We want to help everybody, but our veterans have sacrificed so much,” said local veteran and community volunteer Reggie Roach. “They’re so quick to go to war, but when they come home, we just forget about them and that’s not good.”

Saturday was Beulah Baptist’s first time holding the event. Service members who attended were offered a free lunch.
