Let's Work Let's Play, Let's Live Together
The late Marion Stubbs Thomas founded Jack and Jill of America, Incorporated on January 24, 1938 in Philadelphia, Pennsyvlania. Twenty mothers came together to discuss creating an organization to provide social, cultural and educational opportunities for youth between the ages of two and ninteen. In 1946, ten chapters were involved in the national restructuring process. Constitution and bylaws were drawn up and the organization was incorporated under the laws of the state of Delaware.
Today, Jack and Jill boasts over 220 chapters nationwide, representing over 30,000 family members. Each chapter plans programming activities guided under a national theme. Through service projects, Jack and Jill creates a medium of contact for children to stimulate their growth and development.
