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.”

A Match Made in Heaven:

Area Baby Center becomes part of the Christ Child Society Family

 

The Christ Child Society of Summit is excited to announce its acquisition of the Area Baby Center (ABC). ABC was founded in 1999 by The Summit Women’s Club. The Christ Child Society is proud and grateful to add the Area Baby Center and it’s clients into our fold, and to serve these families with love.  The Center’s goal is to provide basic necessities such as diapers, baby wipes and toiletries, as well as feminine hygiene products, for underserved families in Summit, New Providence, Berkeley Heights, Chatham, Stirling, Gillette and Springfield. The ABC helps approximately 60 families and distributes 5,000 to 8,500 diapers each month. The mission of ABC is to ease the burden of parents caring for a baby up to two years of age and to show the support of the community.

 Yes, we have a Junior CCS!

 

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. Some of their inaugural activities included selling roses outside the childrens’ masses at St. Teresa of Avila church on Mother’s Day to raise money for CCS, organizing a children’s book drive, collecting for Loaves and Fishes, and detagging layette clothing. They recently held  Diaper drive for the Area Baby Center.  For more information on becoming a Junior Christ Child Society member, contact us at ccssummit@gmail.com.
