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.”

The holidays are a time for celebration, sharing and remembering loved ones.  In the spirit of giving, send a Christ Child Christmas Layette Card to honor a special person while also helping give a baby in need a loving start in life. 

 

Email us at ccssummit@gmail.com or click here to donate to our progam and receive this charming and thoughtful Christmas card.

 

A contribution of your choice to the Christ Child of Summit Layette Program provides:

 

-$10: A set of onesies, socks and baby supplies
-$40: Clothes, a set of onesies, socks and baby supplies
-$80: An entire Layette which includes a handmade cap and fleece blanket, clothes, a set of onesies, socks and baby supplies
-$120: A snowsuit, an entire Layette which includes a handmade cap and fleece blanket, clothes, a set of onesies, socks, and baby supplies

 

Cards will be available outside Sunday morning masses at St. Teresa of Avila in Summit on December 2nd. It’s the perfect holiday gift for teachers, grandparents, and those friends who”have everything!”
