In the spirit and season of giving and as a way to help support our area veterans this winter, Chaplain Mark Malizzi, director of Thunder Outreach Ministries (Faith-based community charity programs) presented Steven K. McEwan, executive director of Boyertown Area Multi-Service programs, a check for $3,530 toward a special fund set up to help local veterans with food and humanitarian needs in our region.
This money was raised with the help of local charities and businesses working together including Thunder Outreach, Boyertown Area Salvation Army, Boyertown State Theater and the Boyertown Area Multi-Services working together with many local businesses in November to host a Veterans Basket raffle and a live Veterans Concert with high energy faith and family music from Heaven's Thunder Band.
This is just one of the many events that Thunder Outreach has hosted and helped organize over the years in the region to help local families and charities in need.
Some of their community events have even set records in Guinness World Records and Ripley's Believe it or not.
