MCJJ Community Service Committee
We are committed to creating a world of opportunity through our community service endeavors.
The Eastern Region of Jack and Jill of America's Community Service Committee has focused on feeding the mind, body and soul by providing service in our community of food, literacy support and mental wellness. In light of COVID-19, we recognize that there is a great level of food insecurity in our communities. Therefore, the main community service theme will be "Feed the Need" which will focus on addressing food insecurity and other related needs in our communities. MCJJ will empower our families for success through community service.
Over the years, the Morris County Chapter of Jack and Jill of America has worked with our local community partners to provide meaningful and sustainable community service.
TABLE OF HOPE PARTNERSHIP
Spring Street runs a program called Table of Hope, which provides lunch and dinner meals to Morris County residents daily. MCJJ family members have prepared and served meals to the community at the TOH twice per month including Thanksgiving Day. Spring Street also runs a program called Healthy Families/Healthy Moms to provide services and counseling to families/moms with young children. MCJJ members have donated baby food, diapers and feminine products to support this program.
The Morris County Chapter (NJ) of Jack and Jill of America, Incorporated celebrated Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and honored his legacy through community service with a drive-by food drive benefitting nourish.NJ. Over 600 pounds of shelf stable food was donated. All food donations will be distributed to Morris County communities.
MAY'S MINDFUL MOMENT
Simple mindfulness practices may help bring a sense of calm during these unprecedented times. Think of ways you can fit in these self-care tips throughout the month and share them with a friend. They may provide you a few moments to slow down and reduce the stress of the day.
