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 pastries once each year to the VA Hospital in San Diego to help celebrate patients' birthdays.  We also contribute to Backpacks for Veterans, Veterans Village in San Diego, and to the annual North County Veterans Stand Down.

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 an annual 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 recently sponsored a Valley Center History Museum historic marker, which was placed at Valley Center Cemetery, an historically significant local site.

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.
