To commemorate the DAR’s National Day of Service, members of the Barrington, IL-based Signal Hill Chapter, NSDAR, packed individual baskets with games, small toys, books, pencils and markers and other small items intended for young patients at UChicago Medicine Comer Children’s Hospital in Chicago. The chapter delivered 54 baskets and several boxes of assorted items just in time for Halloween. Chapter Regent Joyce Wright explained, “The children are not able to receive candy, so we found another way to deliver some Halloween fun.”
