Chapter History

The Chester County, PA, Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Inc. was first organized in September 1975 when 20 African-American mothers met at the home of the late Dr. F. DeVida Johnson in Malvern, PA, to discuss forming an interest group in Jack and Jill. Calling themselves “Las Madres,” meaning the mothers in Spanish, these women worked diligently for one year to develop programs for children and to provide community service to the Greater Delaware Valley.

Community Service

When it comes to Community Service, two themes are important to us: (i) Principles and (ii) Strategies. Principles consist of effectively leveraging our power to create positive change in our communities; training our children to be servant leaders and taking action to address the needs of others and finally raising awareness/brand recognition of our organization in the community as a partner for change. Our strategy is to encourage families to live and teach the value of giving throughout our program year by collecting and donating to those in need.

Examples of our ongoing community service include our efforts to:

• Actively participate in Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service

• Revive and rejuvenate rooms at women's shelters

• Collect items for children to fulfill their Christmas wishes

• Donate pillows and handwritten notes to the homeless, as part of our "Sweet Dreams" campaign
