Mid-Hudson Valley Chapter President's Greeting
Welcome to the website of the Mid-Hudson Valley Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Inc. Our members live in the scenic and historic Northern Westchester, Putnam and Dutchess counties in New York State. We are proud to be part of a national organization that for almost 80 years has developed future African American leaders. The theme of the Jack and Jill National organization is “The Power to Make a Difference”. We believe that every child has the power to make an impact, and as members, we strive to foster the development of children.
We are extremely proud that Mid-Hudson Valley Chapter is the home chapter of the Eastern Regional Secretary, Margaret Gibson, and the recently elected Eastern Regional Teen President, Audrey Watt.
For almost 25 years, our children have gathered together to engage in educational, recreational, cultural, and legislative activities. Our proximity to New York City and to various historical sites and museums provide endless opportunities for fabulous programming. We encourage our children to make a difference in their communities, and our chapter has contributed consistently to various organizations. We have been honored to donate our time and resources to the Peekskill Youth Bureau, The Family Services of Westchester, The Lymphoma and Leukemia Society, March of Dimes, My Sister’s Place, The United Way of Westchester and Putnam, The Children’s Home of Poughkeepsie, and the Ronald McDonald House.
Family is the core of everything that we do: Our chapter’s theme is “We are Family: Pride, Perseverance and Power.” We acknowledge that our families are the source of our power. By bringing families together to fellowship, learn, and do good works, we strengthen eachother.
Thank you for visiting our site.
Long Live Jack and Jill!
