National Society Daughters of the American Revolution - Sweetwater Chapter, Douglasville, GA
Community Outreach

What do we do after joining?

The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR) is an organization that supports its objectives mostly through the use of a committee system. There are various levels of committee leadership in place between the national and local chapter levels, which provide the tools and information used by chapter committee chairmen and committee members. Please click here to read more about the many, many types of committees, projects, outreach, and service that the NSDAR supports.

The Sweetwater Chapter NSDAR was originally composed primarily of Daughters in the teaching profession, and education remains a key interest of our Daughters. We've also expanded into support of national defense and friendship. We currently serve our community in several venues:  SAR/CAR cooperation; Constitution Week and Bells Across America; Wreaths Across America; DAR service for veterans/patients; United Service Organization (USO) at the Atlanta Airport in conjunction with other organizations; Box Tops for Education and Education Labels; essay contests for students in American History and on Christopher Columbus; DAR Good Citizenship and Scholorship; JROTC recognition; Youth Villages: Inner Harbour Campus; DAR schools; genealology workshops; literacy and reading to children/older adults; conservation; Flag retirement ceremonies; and first responder honors.  Also, our members hold social gatherings in months without a formal business meeting.

Apart from print and online committee information, an array of annual workshops and conferences also offer a great way for new members to learn more about DAR non-profit work. Speakers share committee overviews, best practices, ideas, changes to policies, and much more. Daughters may learn more about new roles they hold within their chapters, or they may simply determine how to best support the NSDAR objectives themselves.

We welcome all who share in these interests and objectives!
