Why you joined Jack and Jill: I joined Jack and Jill because it is an organization based on family that supports values that are important to me. Membership came at a time when I was seeking a culturally based, civic and leadership outlet for my children. Jack and Jill filled that void and provided so much more, a second family. While we do many activities on our own, it’s been more impactful for my children to experience it as part of a group. We really do work, play and live together. The benefits of membership for me and my family are endless.

Marvis Donalson
Foundation Member at Large
Western Cook County Chapter

I am a native Texan with a 14 year old son, named Blake. Our family joined Jack and Jill of America May 2011.

During my tenure I have served my chapter in many leadership roles: Service Committee Chair, Grade Group Leader, Program Director, IL Area Workday Cluster Chair, Fundraising Chair, Vice-President, 35th Anniversary Chair, and recently President.

In addition to my chapter I have served on the Regional and National Level as Regional Programming Committee, Regional Grant Reader, and Regional Membership Committee.

I joined Jack and Jill because I wanted to connect with like-minded mothers wanting to give their children culturally rich experiences that also focused on leadership development and philanthropic giving. Being part of JJ has given me that and more. As a single mother, the organization has been my extended village since I have no family in the area. I love my JJ Family! I am excited to share my passion for service with the Mid-Western Region. I know that
together we will be able to impact our children and the communities we live in.
