DAR Aids Veterans

EXETER - In November, the Exeter Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) delivered more than 100 pounds of nonperishable food as well as boxes of clothing to Liberty House, a transitional home for veterans – and their adopted cat Libby, short for Liberty. The Exeter Chapter DAR also will send a case of coffee to Liberty House each month.

Liberty House in Manchester provides honorably discharged homeless veterans with a supportive but structured environment and the respect they deserve to enable them to achieve the self-sufficiency to live independently. Veterans receive meals, clothing, household goods and access to services such as medical care, counseling and job training. While 10 veterans – and of course Libby – reside at homey Liberty House, it provides assistance to some 300 veterans in the Manchester area.

Bill Zarakotas, Assistant Director of Community Development, Liberty House, explained that no contribution is too small. “One dollar lets us buy $10.00 worth of food at the local food pantry,” he said. Liberty House relies on contributions of nonperishable food items to supplement the milk, eggs, meat and produce it needs to buy, Zarakotas said.

The Exeter Chapter DAR collected food for Liberty House among its members this fall at the encouragement of Roberta Pevear, Chairperson of the DAR Service for Veterans Committee. Pevear believes supporting our military men and women is among the most worthy endeavors.

Women who are interested in becoming members of the DAR can find information on www.dar.org
