Welcome to the Christ Child Society of Summit


The life of a child is a promise for the future, but for many children their future is at risk. Christ Child Society volunteers reach out to teach, motivate, clothe and care for children in their communities through the initiative of Challenging Poverty: One Child at a Time.


We invite you to view our site and find out more about the society founded by Mary Virginia Merrick and her vision that “the personal element brings true charity to life.”



Volunteers Needed for School Supplies Distribution

The CCS and Bridges Outreach are working together once again to collect and provide school supplies for over 500 children in need in the Summit Public Schools for the school year 2019-20. 


We will be setting up the supplies and distributing to students from August 27th through the 29th, at Bridges Outreach, 120 Morris Avenue, Summit.  Click on the link below to volunteer to help.  Any time you can give is appreciated!


Volunteer here.



Consider spending a few hours a month making a difference in the life of a child...


Join CCS members as we teach and mentor children during our established tutoring program and our new reading enrichment program in a small Catholic elementary school in East Orange, NJ.  Look for sign up opportunities this September, or contact us at ccssummit@gmail.com for more information and to let us know if you would like to help.


 Junior CCS Debut


Did you know we now have a Junior Christ Child Society?  Children in grades 8 through 12 can join this great group of students who have come together to support the activities and mission of the Christ Child Society of Summit, which is to serve children in need in our community. Their inaugural activity was selling roses outside the childrens’ masses at St. Teresa of Avila church on Mother’s Day to raise money for CCS.  They have many more service activities planned! For more information on becoming a Junior Christ Child Society member, contact us at ccssummit@gmail.com.
