The Community Classroom Committee was established by the National Society in June 2016 at the beginning of the Dillon Administration to move forward in service to America. Daughters of the American Revolution have always supported historic preservation, education, and patriotism as exhibited by many National Committees. The Community Classroom Committee seeks to encourage Daughters to volunteer to provide additional support to teachers and children in classrooms and schools in their own communities throughout the nation, as well as overseas. Education makes the difference for all children. DAR women can provide a positive force for children who have difficult circumstances at home. Students at risk of school failure at all levels, preschool through high school, need extra assistance to develop skills and confidence to become responsible and productive citizens.
On December 11, General Nathanael Greene-Pettaquamscutt Chapter representatives delivered useful items for students to the school nurse at Hoxsie School in Warwick. These knit hats, mittens, gloves, socks, underwear, sweatshirts, fleece jackets, scarves, tissues, paper towels and hand wipes will be distributed as needed
throughout the school. All items were generously donated by chapter members to fulfill a request by the Community Classroom Committee.
