Across America, the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) stress chapter participation in a National Day of Service each Fall.

The William Taylor Chapter recently learned that “Hands On Missions” from North Carolina was traveling to Blackstone to join with “Soldiers of Mercy Ministry” to build three wheelchair ramps and perform needed home repairs and yard work for veterans and others impacted by COVID.

The Taylor DAR chapter collected paper goods, snack items, water, GatorAid, breakfast items, and disinfectant wipes to stock a home where some of the workers would be staying during the project time

Ṫhe DAR is a nonprofit, nonpolitical, volunteer women’s service organization dedicated to preserving American history and promoting patriotism. Service is very much stressed.

Any woman 18 years or older, regardless of race, religion, or ethnic background -- who can prove lineal descent from a patriot of the American Revolution -- is eligible for membership.
