And Activities

ALA Girls
State California

Unit 179 encourages our local high school students to participate in ALA Girls State Program of California. We interview students throughout Marin, sponsoring delegates to attend a week-long session focused on leadership and citizenship in Sacramento. In the fall we host a dinner for the delegates and their families to honor their achievements and share the Girls State experience.

Gratitude
Care Packages

Our non-profit project focuses on sending care packages to active duty troops stationed around the world. We aim to provide support, encouragement, and a touch of home to these brave men and women serving far from their loved ones.

Volunteer Services
Supporting Local Veterans

Our volunteers contribute time and support for the residents from the Veterans Home in Yountville and Fort Miley in San Francisco. Working with volunteer services, Unit 179 donates gift cards and fills requested needs for our veterans year round. We host a yearly luncheon recognizing and honoring our female veterans at the Log Cabin.

Poppy Program
Bringing Awareness To Our Community

Red poppies are worn to show support for the armed forces community, those currently serving, veterans and their families. Wearing a red poppy honors the heroes who have fallen and the service members who are fighting for our freedom. Auxiliary volunteers distribute paper poppies in exchange for contributions to assist veterans programs.

Operation Santa Claus Fisher House

Supporting Travis Air Force Base Fisher House year around and at the holidays with our “Operation Santa Claus” gift bags and cards. Fisher House provides no-cost housing for families of active-duty service men and women and veterans undergoing medical treatment at the David Grant Medical Center on base.

Homeward Bound
Transitioning Into Housing

We are working with Homeward Bound in Novato, helping veterans transitioning into housing with “move-in boxes” of supplies.
