Chapter Activities and Projects

Chapter Activities

Education

The Santa Anita Chapter supports NSDAR's schools in the Appalachian region by collecting Campbell's, Swanson, and other product labels. The schools can obtain a variety of educational equipment and supplies for these items. We also collect cash donations for the NSDAR schools.

Constitution Week and American History Month

Santa Anita Chapter prepares an educational display each fall at the children’s wing of the local public library for Constitution Week, September 17-23. The chapter does another exhibit each February to commemorate some event or theme for DAR American History Month.

Conservation

The chapter has supported replanting programs in Eaton Canyon following wildfires. At nearly every meeting, we discuss simple measures we can take to conserve our natural resources. 

Veterans and Patriotic Endeavors

Chapter members send holiday cards, notes of appreciation, and Girl Scout cookies to active-duty military personnel.
