OUR COMMUNITY SERVICE
Community service is the hallmark of a servant leader and is the underpinning of the Jack and Jill of America philosophy of leadership development. For this reason, Jack and Jill youth across the country that complete at least 25 hours of community service receive certificates of recognition.
Jack and Jill is also proud to have established a National Day of Service held each January to make a difference in the community. In addition, regional community service projects under the leadership of the Member-at-Large (MAL) elected officers for each region are held in conjunction with seven regional Teen Leadership Conferences held each year.
The National Program Director serves as the Liaison to the MALs. Jack and Jill of America will continue to be an organization that serves the community through its efforts and that of the Jack and Jill of America Foundation. Likewise, we will continue to train our children to be servant leaders.
GSM conducts regular good drives to help combat food insufficiency within our community, donates backpacks to children in need of school supplies, donates diapers to the St. Anne' Center for Youth, Mothers and Families, offer time to cook and serve the homeless within the community, recognize frontline healthcare workers, donate food Thanksgiving baskets in partnership with ICare, DC to help create holiday blessing for families in need, volunteer with elementary school to help foster literacy with school children, donate coats to Volunteers of America, decorate and donate 'birthday boxes' to children in partnership with the Ronald McDonald House, Donate clothing, and personal hygiene items to the Shepherds' Cove Women's Shelter and the Ellizabeth Center Fish of Laurel, and more.
