The Old Concord Chapter (OCC) Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) participated in Concord’s Veterans Day Ceremony at Sleepy Hollow Cemetery by placing a wreath at the cemetery’s flagpole.
The OCC has an internal clothing drive for items the Edith Nourse Rogers Memorial Veterans hospital requests. Daughters have gone on shopping trips for requested items and bring them to the hospital’s volunteer office.
The OCC also supports and participates in Operation Delta Dog Walk and Wag for Veterans. Walk and Wag rescues shelter dogs and trains them as service dogs for disabled veterans.
The OCC sends veterans at the Edith Nourse Rogers Memorial Veterans Hospital cards. We let them know their service is appreciated. Children under the guidance of OCC daughters have also written cards to veterans.
