Let’s Work, Let’s Play, Let’s Live Together
“To us as mothers, 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, Founder
Welcome to the Suffolk County Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Inc. Website. On behalf of the mothers, fathers and children of the Suffolk County Chapter I would like to thank you for visiting our website. In 1938, Jack and Jill of America, Inc., was founded in Philadelphia to address the cultural, educational, social and civic concerns of African American children and teens. In 1962, sixteen dynamic mothers established the Suffolk County, New York Chapter of Jack and Jill of America. From its inception, the thrust of the Suffolk County Chapter has been to assist in the development of well-educated children who are conscious of their civic duties and enthusiastic about sharing their talents with their community and the world.
