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.
