The Ann Arbor Chapter’s programming activities support the National Thrust for community stewardship and “The Power to Make a Difference. On Mission. On Purpose”.
Our children are taught that they are catalysts in their community for change and they make the community stronger when they positively participate and make a difference. Our youngest Jack and Jills participate in local events that support the community – ensuring that their commitment to contribute, matters, for every life in our community and those ties remain strong.

If you are in the Washtenaw area (Ann Arbor, Jackson, Brighton) and have a community need that we can support, we would also love to partner with you on a National Grant.

This year …
In response to the social isolation epidemic caused by the Covid-19 crisis, our Senior Teens hosted weekly reading hours to keep our youngest members engaged. Our mother members shifted monthly programming activities to virtual platforms and went to great lengths to ensure uninterrupted programming quality. Supporting our civic commitment, the chapter also supported four local entities (Meals on Wheels, Carpenter Place, Foster Grandparent Program and Parkway Meadows) that provide Covid-19 relief programs to seniors and shut-ins, by writing letters of cheer and supplying day-to-day necessities such as cleaning supplies, non-perishable goods and face masks. Fundraising efforts also benefited NAMI (National Mental Health Alliance) and the College Gap Fund.
