Jack & Jill of America, Inc. - New Castle County, Delaware Chapter
The late Marion Stubbs Thomas founded Jack and Jill of America, Incorporated on January 24, 1938 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Twenty mothers came together to discuss creating an organization to provide social, cultural and educational opportunities for youth between 2 - 19 years of age. Today, Jack and Jill is a nationwide organization with over 230 chapters in 35 states and the District of Columbia, representing over 40,000 family members.
The New Castle County, Delaware Chapter of Jack and Jill of America began in 1975. With the guidance of national regional themes, our chapter plans annual programming, leadership activities and supports service projects that impact children and families in New Castle County, the Delaware Valley Cluster and the Eastern Region. Projects that we've supported include the Salvation Army Ringing of the Bells, Food Bank of Delaware, Shoes 2 Share Project T.H.E.R.E, Sunday Breakfast Mission's Hopes Totes, Ministry of Caring Emmanuel Dining Room and Childcare services, and most recently Kind to Kids My Blue Duffle Bag Campaign.
Today, our chapter has 52 mother members and 18 associate members. We are excited to continue a legacy of enriching the lives of children and families in our community. Our motto is "Let's Work, Lets Play, Let's Live Together." Long live Jack and Jill!
