Activities & Volunteer Opportunities for Today's DAR Women

All members of the Pittsburgh Chapter, NSDAR, are encouraged to volunteer to serve, to know one another, and to be involved in the chapter. Our women participate in many projects that reflect their diverse interests and talents.  What abilities do you want to share?  Here is a sampling of some of our activities and service to the community:
