hat a Mighty long way we have come! Jack and Jill of America Foundation became a reality at the 18th National Convention of Jack and Jill of America, Inc. in Washington, DC. The Foundation was incorporated in the state of Illinois in January 1968.

overall from most chapters, Foundation cannot be successful without the support of the chapters. A big appreciation goes to the Atlanta, GA chapter for raising the most for Foundation with over $19,000 from mothers and teens.

As you look throughout this Annual Report, you will see the historical photos of the many projects and programs supported under the leadership of Foundation President Jacqueline Robinson. This was only the beginning.

I would also like to thank our Board of Trustees, especially Christine Govan our outgoing Treasurer for her outstanding commitment to our finances. I am just a part of the great team that continues our mission to “DO GREAT THINGS FOR KIDS�.

WE DO GREAT THINGS FOR KIDS! Still living the legacy, Foundation has supported over 90 projects throughout the country and 24 scholarships for students through the partnership with UNCF.

On behalf of those that benefit from your generous gifts, thank you!

Eastern Region Teen Conference

Lucille Hadley Service Project T

his is an amazing year for the Eastern Region! Chapters rallied behind the regional service project of feeding the hungry through donations of food to a local food bank or shelter. Regional Director Joi Grady wanted a project that chapters could do as a group. MAL Karen Chaplin and Regional Service Chair Margaret Gibson pulled together a project and the Eastern Region responded in a huge way! All year chapters have collected donations at meetings and at designated locations, teens have positioned themselves at grocery stores with food banks lists for shoppers that opened their hearts and purchased extras, chapters partnered with other organizations for collection efforts to donate in excess of the 100 pounds of food that each chapter had been requested to provide to a local center. The year is not over and neither is the intensity of the chapters to do all they can before the year end! One of the youngest Eastern Region Chapters, the National Harbor, Maryland Chapter, received 6000 pounds of donated food which was distributed at a community fair held at their adopted shelter in late May. The Eastern Regional officers traveled to the fair to assist National Harbor Chapter!! We joined other volunteers in bagging vegetables for fair visitors to take home.

The teens donated 6000 meals in January as their service project at the Teen Leadership Summit held In Washington, DC. Partnering with Kids Against Hunger, a humanitarian food service agency, teens worked together to package the healthy meal packets that would then be shipped to needy families in the United States and with the largest bulk going to the neediest of locales around the world. We were also excited about the 7500+ sandwiches that the teens created at Teen Conference this past March. The teens were positioned at self-contained work stations and did assembly line packing of sandwiches, snacks and filled the room with completed meals. Our partner, Boston Cares rushed the fresh bags of food to waiting agencies that night. More than 7500 hungry people in the city of Boston opened a delicious fresh meal and an inspiration tucked in the bag and written on the bag. This project was completely underwritten by the Lucille Hadley Grant, Williams Capital of NYC, MBIA, Inc of Armonk, NY and MAL Chaplin’s husband. All of these efforts focused on the one theme of feeding the hungry‌which continues to be a nationwide concern. Happily, we are able to report that 45 of the 55 chapters in the Eastern Region completed their food donation challenge. As a group we have donated in excess of 38,500 pounds of food which is in excess of 35,000 meals donated!!!

he Mighty Mid-Western Region Teen Leadership Conference was held at the University of Akron this year, and it was a great success! In addition to the excitement of competitions, workshops, plenaries and talent show, the teens had the pleasure of impacting both the teens and the community of Akron through community service.

Akron Food Bank- The teens packed a record number of canned items –10,000 lbs-to help feed the hungry served by the Akron-Canton Food Bank.

The Mighty Midwestern Press states that “nearly 600 Jack and Jill teens, mothers, and fathers spent Thursday morning serving.” Participants were divided into eight service groups:

In partnership with Westfield Insurance, The Lucille Hadley grant from the Jack and Jill of America Foundation, and the funds raised by teens to support their own Spare Change! Campaign, the teens of the Mighty Mid-Western region were able to not only leave a legacy of service but they were also able to leave a very significant monetary contribution demonstrating the philanthropic spirit of Jack and Jill of America. Foundation Chair King presented to each The Boys and Girls Club and YEPAW a check for $5000. This $10,000 contribution is record-setting for the Mighty MidWestern Region Teens!! Westfield Insurance in honor of our 75th birthday donated 75 laptops to the Boys & Girls Club of Akron. This is the beginning of a wonderful partnership.

The day ended with a group of very tired and excited teens.

The day began with a rally chaired by Teen Foundation Chair Daniel King in which Past National President Alice Peoples (2003-2005) served as the first ever Grand Marshall of the Day. PNP Peoples was chosen for the honor because it was during her service as Regional Foundation Member-AtLarge (1997-2001) that a service component was added to Teen Conference.

South Central Region Teen Conference

n July 1962, the Prairie View Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Incorporated was established. The chapter membership was mainly comprised of the professors of Prairie View A&M University and their families. For many ears, Prairie View required that their professors reside in the Prairie View community, thus providing an active membership for the chapter. Eventually, the professors of Prairie View were released from this requirement. In 1996, the families began to migrate towards Houston and the surrounding areas, thus causing the demise of the Prairie View Chapter of Jack and Jill of America. With a concern for the legacies from the chapter and the growth in the Katy community, the need arose for the reinstatement of the chapter to include the Katy area. The idea and the vision came from the insightful minds of two very devoted and caring mothers. Vickie Byrd and Pat Miller saw the need and the desire for unity among family and friends on the West side of Houston. The African American population had increased tremendously in a community that did not offer opportunities to service the needs of our culture. With this vision in mind, these mothers put into motion

a plan to bring together other mothers with the same concerns and goals to meet the needs for our children. Vickie and Pat compiled a list of mothers in the area and contacted them to determine the level of interest and the response was promising. In the early fall of 2001, Vickie Byrd and Pat miller along with Mona Covington, Linda ParrishHeard; and Paulette Jones, put together a plan to establish a chapter in West Houston. These five women will later become known as the “Fabulous Five”. They diligently put in late evenings and busy days to start what would hopefully become the Katy-Prairie View Chapter of Jack and Jill fo America, Inc.

Great Southwest Equestrian Center in Katy, Texas. The newly formed KatyPrairie View Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Inc. joined the South Central Region as the 9th chapter established in the Houston area. In October 2012, The Katy-Prairie View Chapter of Jack and Jill celebrated its 10 year anniversary and is a strong chapter with a total of 63 mothers, an active Father’s Auxiliary and Associates.

By June 2002, the Interest Group had sixty-one active members working diligently to become a chapter. On July 12, 2002, the Katy Prairie View Interest Group was voted on as a provisional chapter of Jack and Jill Inc. at the 35th Biennial National Convention of Jack and Jill of America Incorporated held in Los Angeles, California.

he Teens of Birmingham, AL. joined with several Birmingham organizations and institutions to sponsor an afternoon of health and fitness. The Let’s Move Birmingham Fitness Festival consisted of hands on, interactive curriculum, targeting underserved elementary, middle, and high school children and their families. More than 400 children and adults turned out to participate in this day of good health and fun. The goal was to raise awareness about the dangers of childhood obesity and provide resources showcasing how healthy diets, regular movement and fitness activity can make you feel better and help prevent the risk of developing chronic health problems. Jack and Jill teens contributed to the design of the Let’s Move posters and distributed them to schools,

churches, barbershops, and other businesses in the community. More than 50 Jack and Jill children and teens joined participating partners at a press conference with Fox 6 and The Birmingham News on the day of the event. Birmingham teens manned booths engaging children and youth in nutrition and physical activities including amazing race obstacle course, track and walk, meets, ZUUMBA classes, and delicious food tasting. Attendees left with recipes, exercise and cooking tips, and items to assist them with making a commitment and starting their individual healthy fitness program. The teens of Birmingham spent well over 100 hours planning and implementing this awesome community service project. Congratulations to our Birmingham teens.
