Jack and Jill Westchester Incorporated, Jack and Jill Day and Carole Robertson Day
Saturday, September 25th, 2021
We kicked off our 2021-2022 Program Year honoring Carole Robertson at our Jack and Jill day.
Carole Robertson was a teen member of the Birmingham Chapter of Jack & Jill and one of the "4 little girls" killed at the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing on September 15, 1963, marking a turning point in the United States during the civil rights movement. Every year at this time, we honor her. One of our Senior Teens Lauren Watts beautifully highlighted our reason and purpose for the day.
This year we enjoyed good old fashion fun and family connections (tug-o-love, 3 legged races with besties and dads, cards, bbq and connection…. and so much more). Our Community Service Committee was able to maximize the day and collect hundreds of supplies for the teachers and local schools in our community, which will go such a long way.
The other amazing part, was being able to support local black owned businesses as our vendors…please support them where you can. They were amazing:
Sajamma Co provided our amazing personalized tumblers Facebook: Sajamma Co, Instagram: @sajamma_co and firstname.lastname@example.org.
