Supporting our Active Military
The DAR Project Patriot Committee is an official Daughters of the American Revolution committee that supports America’s service personnel in current conflicts abroad. This committee was officially started following the events of September 11, 2001, when the NSDAR began working the Department of the Navy to Sponsor the crew of an aircraft carrier to show support of Operation Enduring Freedom. The Sallie Harrison Chapter has a long history of supporting our Active Military.
Ongoing Chapter Efforts
During WWI, Sallie Harrison Daughters contributed the aspirin fund, bought war bonds and knitted and rolled bandages. Most recently, the Daughters of the Sallie Harrison Chapter have participated in the following:
Currently, the Sallie Harrison Chapter partners with local organizations, including K.I.S.S Kids and the USO of Central Florida, to continue support our active military men and women.
K.I.S.S. is a program run by children, with the help of some adults, which want to make a difference in a soldier’s life no matter what state they are from, or what branch of service they are in. Each month a package is sent to a particular solider and includes a message by children with love and appreciation for what the soldiers are doing for our freedoms.
