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.”

 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.

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.  Collection bins were located at all Summit public elementary schools, as well as at the entrances to St. Teresa’s Church and Memorial Hall from April 29 through May 10.
Specific items needed are: 1”, 2” and 3” binders, marble composition books and spiral notebooks (wide and college ruled).
 
Look for information this summer about dropping off supplies at Bridges.  We will also send out information about volunteering during the distribution of supplies to students in August.

Another Successful Blankets for Babies Night at the Elks!

Thank you to all of our members and friends for stopping by, and chipping in at our Blankets for Babies Night at the Elks on March 21st.  We are pleased to announce that the Christ Child Society of Summit has received a Beacon Grant from the Summit Elks Lodge #1246 to subsidize the cost of the fleece for the blankets.  We finished up 100 blankets with our friends from the Elks Lodge on Thursday night.  Thank you to all the Elks, Christ Child members, and friends and family who helped!  The blankets will be included in the layettes we provide to babies in need at Overlook and Morristown hospitals.
