DAR’s COMMITMENT TO LITERACY – The Elizabeth Carey Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution promotes literacy by donating books to local schools. The book being donated for each library is “The First Ladies”. This book tells about the First Ladies from Martha Washington to Michelle Obama. It tells what it’s like being married to a president, their children, about the history of women in America and about the special causes of each First Lady.

The DAR partners with local organizations that promote literacy in the community and schools.Their goal is to promote child literacy initiates that enhance reading programs, mentor at-risk children or teens and/or sponsor programs that encourage parents and grandparents to read to their children.
