The Helen Pouch Memorial Fund is the National Junior Membership Committee’s official fund-raising project. This fund is named in memory of Helen Pouch (1901-1919) who was the daughter of Mrs. William H. Pouch, the first National Chairman of the Junior Membership Committee in 1937, and later President General, 1941-1944. The fund provides scholarships, medical aid, and general financial assistance to the two DAR supported schools, Kate Duncan Smith DAR School in Alabama, and Tamassee DAR School in South Carolina. In honor of Mrs. William Pouch, or “Aunt Helen,” as she was fondly called by the Juniors, we use the Kangaroo to represent the Helen Pouch, Memorial Fund.
