The Ansel Brainerd Cook Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution located in Libertyville presented Tracy Hahn on September 10, 2020 with the DAR Community Service Award.

The Community Service Award is awarded to individuals or groups who have contributed to the community in an outstanding manner through cultural, educational, humanitarian, patriotic, historical, citizenship, environmental conservation efforts, and by organizing or participating in community activities.


Tracy has been an instrumental partner representing Kohl's Associates in Action. Kohl's strongly encourages their associates to donate their personal time to make a difference in their local communities by volunteering with eligible non-profit organizations. Kohl's associates are committed to service. In support of their associate's volunteerism, Kohl's grants a reward to the eligible non-profit once the criterion is met.

The Ansel Brainerd Cook Chapter began working with Tracy and her team of volunteers in 2018. They have tied countless single layer fleece blankets, which we in turn give to Project Linus. They have also hand written hundreds of cards for our deployed soldiers and for Honor Flight.

Tracy's volunteering goes way beyond Kohl's Associates in Action. When the pandemic began and Kohl's temporarily suspended their volunteer program, Tracy was hard at work making rubber band bracelets and animal charms for the children at Shriners Hospital and for Ronald McDonald House. Tracy's never ending desire to help and serve the community is why we chose her to receive the DAR Community Service Award.
