Greetings on behalf of the Positive and Vibrant Mothers of the Potomac Valley Chapter of Jack and Jill, Inc.,
I am grateful and honored to serve as President of this distinguished chapter and enthusiastic about our mission to nurture the next generation of leaders developed by volunteer service, philanthropic giving, and civic duty. The Potomac Valley Chapter was chartered in October 1984 by twenty nine visionary women devoted to the mission of Jack and Jill. Today Potomac Valley members are just as devoted to the ideals of Jack and Jill, and our chapter aspiration of Living a Life of Significance is the guiding principle that illuminates our path. As dedicated members of the Mighty East we willingly leverage our networks, assets, time and talents to provide children the social, educational, leadership and civic experiences they will need to succeed.
We do this by delivering programming 100% in line with the National Programming Thrusts focused on Civic, Educational, Health, Social and Recreational betterment. We also actively support Eastern Region initiatives such as Gavel Clubs that help our children become confident public speakers, and use the Racial Identity Tool Kit to create a sense of pride in our heritage. We are laser focused on leveraging technology to lighten our loads, believe that partnerships with sister chapters are critical to increase the impact of Jack and Jill, actively integrate our Fathers Auxiliary into programming to show our children and the world what can be accomplished through the love and support of fathers, and we joyfully exalt the accomplishments of our mothers. Our mission is to create a Jack and Jill experience that our families cherish!
We appreciate your interest in our chapter and hope that you’ll take a moment to view information on our leadership, signature programs, and community service efforts benefiting organizations such as: The United Negro College Fund, A Wider Circle, March of Dimes, Martha’s Table, Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Washington, and Jack and Jill of America Foundation.
In Jack and Jill Spirit,
Karen McCain Borno
Potomac Valley Chapter President
