DAR Volunteers Serve Veterans At Coolidge Center

Monday, December 30, 2013

The Coolidge Center is a place to go for veterans who need medical help and advice and guidance on veterans' issues. It was taken over by Santa’s elves during the holiday to say ‘thank you‘ to all the people who had laid their lives on the line for freedom.  

The VFW and the five Chapters of the Daughters of the American Revolution were there, spreading Christmas cheer and many “thanks for your service’’ to the clients.  The five chapters, Nancy Ward, Chief John Ross, Chickamauga, Judge David Campbell and Moccasin Bend, sent food and members to help serve. Wearing Santa hats, they helped fill plates with deviled eggs, cookies, veggie trays, and an assortment of other finger foods.   Knowing that a number of clients had diabetes they had made an effort to have food for them to eat also. 

Carmike theater in Cleveland sent a bag of popcorn with two workers to fill buckets of the popcorn.

The DAR has a commitment to veterans and active duty military.
