In celebration of the 125th anniversary of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, members committed to honor their heritage as they “Celebrate America!” through community service efforts.
As an organization founded on service in 1890, members have worked tirelessly to promote historic preservation, patriotism and education in communities across the nation as well as overseas. With the original goal of providing 1 million hours of volunteer service a year, members quickly surpassed those numbers and are recording close to 5 million hours each year.
The Celebrate America! initiative encourages members to become involved in community service to discover the rewards of volunteerism and to help make their local communities stronger. DAR members are giving back to their communities in appreciation for the nation they love!
On October 11, 2015, the 125th anniversary of the founding of DAR, chapters from coast to coast and across the world participated in special service projects demonstrating the combined impact of our DAR mission. The National DAR Day of Service gave members a chance to join together in a tremendous effort to illustrate our National Society’s collective commitment to America on the day of our founding.
