Century 21’s Annual Coats for Kids Drive

By GENEVA BRETT
The Native Daughters of the Golden West recently donated $300 worth of new Coats to Century 21’s Annual Coats for Kids Drive.   Donating to the community isn’t to the Native Daughters, it’s an integral part of the organization. The Los Banos (Lomitas Parlor, no 255) which began in 1933 holds fundraisers throughout the year to Support the Troops for the Holidays, offer Essay Contests and Scholarships to our youth, donates to our Veterans, Veterans Homes, Wreaths Across America and  Children’s Foundations to name a few.
Native Daughters of the Golden West were first organized in 1866; there are now 329 Parlors in the Golden State. Julia Morgan, the famed architect of Hearst Castle, drew the plans for the NDGW home in San Francisco. Formally dedicated in January 1929, the Home currently is maintained for the “aid and comfort of NDGW members”. Located in the center of San Francisco, the NDGW Home is a four-story, reinforced concrete building with a Museum, Meeting Facilities, Public Reference Library (Pioneer Roster), and guest rooms for Native Daughters of the Golden West members and their guests to visit the city of San Francisco.
