Our goal this year is to raise enough money to sponsor a Service dog for a Veteran through Angel Paws. Angel Paws is an organization that trains rescue dogs to help change the lives of veterans who are suffering from PTSD and Physical Disabilities. We need your generosity so that we can fulfill our goal of providing highly trained dogs to veterans who suffer from the effects of military conflict. Angel PAWS, Service and Companion Dogs, make a significant difference in the lives of veterans who have given so much to us. Our dogs are all rescue dogs given a second chance. Our Angel Paws are waiting to be matched up with special veterans in need.

DAR is a non-profit, non-political volunteer women's service organization dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving American history, and securing America's future through better education for the youth. Fort GreenveVille Chapter DAR members also volunteer to support active duty military personnel, assist veterans with donations to the local veteran’s office and veteran hospitals. The Fort Greene Ville Chapter has always been highly motivated and involved in the community.

Fort GreeneVille Chapter DAR is a proud Commemorative Partner of the Vietnam War Commemoration
