Native Daughters of the Golden West members Durell Ewing, Roberta Saling and Joyce Crouch met with Rescue Mission staff members this week to present hundreds of donated socks for those in need this winter.

The Merced County Rescue Mission this week received a donation of more than 400 pairs of socks from local members of the Native Daughters of the Golden West.

The “Winter Sox Drive” effort was part of the local group’s Community Welfare Project during 2021. Members of the organization’s Merced chapter — Veritas Parlor No. 75 — were on hand for the presentation, including Parlor President Durell Ewing, Joyce Couch and Roberta Saling.

The Native Daughters organization was founded in 1886 on the principles of “Love of Home, Devotion to the Flag, Veneration of the Pioneers, and Faith in the Existence of God.” The organization originated out of the need for a community space that supports women, and over the years, they’ve left a massive legacy of charity work and community-building. The Native Daughters also raise funds and organize projects to preserve California’s unique history.
