Local support groups came together to host "Valor Day," in an effort to help veterans fully take advantage of the benefits they have earned.

Neighborhood Legal Services, and Veterans Outreach center hosted the event at the Buffalo and Erie County Public Library - which ran from 9:30 this morning, to 1:30 in the afternoon.

The veterans were given educational workshops to explain how to make VA benefit claims, as well as learn about disability law, debt collection defense, and other topics regarding public benefits.

The event also helps partner veterans who need assistance with representatives from service organizations in the community.
