Chapter Activities and Projects

 

RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE

Chapter members collect pull tabs from aluminum cans for donation to the Children of the American Revolution.  The tabs are recycled for the benefit of the Ronald McDonald House charity.  Ronald McDonald House provides a home away from home for families during medical treatment for their seriously ill children.

SERVICE FOR VETERANS

Honoring our country's veterans is very important to our chapter.  We regularly contribute to the USO Center at San Diego Airport, and we provide a birthday cake each year to the VA Hospital in San Diego.  We also contribute to Backpacks for Veterans and to the VFW Post in Escondido.

Chapter members place flags on veterans' graves at Valley Center Cemetery for Memorial Day and Veterans Day.

The Cemetery Project Team updates Valley Center Cemetery's records on a quarterly basis and continues the process of identifying veterans buried in the cemetery.

VALLEY CENTER COMMUNITY

We volunteer at the Valley Center Public Library and participate in various community events.  Members volunteer at hospitals, churches, schools, and in hospice organizations.  We are in the process of sponsoring an Historic Marker to be placed at an historically significant site in Valley Center. 

WREATHS ACROSS AMERICA TM

The chapter hosts a Wreaths Across America ceremony at Valley Center Cemetery each December.  Chapter members work with the community to sponsor wreaths to honor the military veterans buried in the cemetery.
