Our History

Steel City Vets is a grass-roots non-profit organization started and ran by Veterans in support of Veterans.

Steel City Vets was form in late 2010 and started by helping to host small social activities throughout the region to help connect the growing population of Post 9/11 Veterans together. In November of 2014, are application for non-profit status under Section 501(C)(3) of the IRS Tax Code was approved. To date, we have connected hundreds of Veterans together through activities such as our yearly joint sponoship of the Pat Tillman Shadow Run - Pittsburgh and joint events with our other connections throughout the community including Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall & Museum, the Veterans Breakfast Club, the Mission Continues, Team RWB, Veterans Leadership Program and others. The goal of these events are to get Veterans active, engaged and excited about the community in which they call home.
