Oklahoma Daughters of the American Revolution group seeks funds to help veterans
The Oklahoma chapter of Daughters of the American Revolution is trying to establish an endowment to provide further assistance to veterans.
A women’s service group is raising money for a new project to benefit military veterans.
The Veteran’s First Fund is the brainchild of Pat McFall, state regent for the Daughters of the American Revolution, or DAR. She said her organization hopes to raise at least $150,000 to endow the fund, which would help qualified veterans with minor expenses not covered by existing programs.
“Basically it will be a hand up that might help them get back on their feet,” McFall said. “For some in the autumn of their life, it may just help them have a better day.”
