We are the proud recipients of the 2016-2017 Jack and Jill Foundation Reading Corner Grant. We are proud to partner with Jack and Jill Foundation, Making Hope Happen Foundation and Jones Elementary School. The assistance received from the Reading Corner Grant will allow Jones Elementary to make a difference through literacy support for K-3 students of Jones Elementary School in the San Bernardino City Unified School District (SBCUSD). We are so excited to get started!
We believe that Literacy has the ability to change lives.
In the Beginning
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 the ages of two and nineteen.
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 230 chapters nationwide, representing over 40,000 family members. Each chapter plans annual programming activities guided under a national theme. Through service projects, Jack and Jill of America creates a medium of contact for children to stimulate their growth and development.
“To us as mothers, it [Jack and Jill] has become a means of furthering an inherent and natural desire …to bestow upon our children all the opportunities possible for a normal and graceful approach to a beautiful adulthood.” Marion Stubbs Thomas
