What We Do

DAR Pillowcase Project for Military Troops sends homemade pillowcases to deployed military troops. We work in connection with local schools, with their sewing classes and those doing service projects to gather these pillowcases. We often provide fabric to the school groups. We also send other items from the soldiers' "wish list" (for a unit deployed in the desert, the requested sunglasses, flip-flops, and water flavoring). We encourage all contributors to write a note to the soldiers, so that they may receive a personal thanks. Notes also attached with the names and emails (unless they request otherwise) of all contributors of pillowcases or funds for shipping costs.

Interesting Info

In our first two months, we sent 150 pillowcases, and 100 other requested items to soldiers.
We are currently working with seven area school groups.
We would like to provide a touch of home to as many deployed military as possible.
