About Jack and Jill Columbia, MD Chapter

By sponsoring numerous educational projects, cultural programs, and social activities over the years, the Chapter has provided a means for increasing educational awareness among our youth, assisted in their growth, and encouraged an appreciation of our culture. A continued commitment and attention to serving the needs of our community instils the value of service in our youth.
With the legacy of the mothers before us, and our commitment to collective work, the current mothers of the Columbia Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Incorporated, have harnessed the power to change the lives of our own children, and others in our community. Working together, “We Can do More”.
