Dear Members of the Christ Child Society (a letter from Lucy Remus)

 
IMG_5790.jpg

   Well, it was a glorious luncheon on Thursday.  I always look forward to attending them.  Joanne Ainsworth would cover classes at Oak Knoll for me.  They inspired me.

   Everything was impeccably done.  The tables, the food, the mass, and the company. I have always felt welcome. I have been attracted to the Society for the hard work that is done cheerfully for the well being of children.

   When Angela Schroeder asked me to knit hats, Norah Marie Bischoff taught me how to use circular needles.  ...After my sister passed away I decided to dedicate all of my hats (and other knitting) to her honor.  She would laugh if she knew that I can knit!  I was not proficient, in her opinion!

   I have a quote from Mary Virginia Merrick in my foyer.  My good friends at Oak Knoll had it made when I left.  I read it every morning.  It is my life’s inspiration.  You can imagine how stunned I was to receive any award, and especially one that bears her name.  I thank you with the most humble heart.

   I will definitely attend the Rummage Sale.  I am hoping to get up (to NJ) for the School Suppplies days as well.

Thank you for seeing the vision and living the mission of Mary Virginia Merrick.  I am proud to help.

 

Sincerely,

Lucy

Ready for a New School Year!

This is a great story... a girl signed up to volunteer at our school supplies distribution in August. When she arrived on distribution day she looked like a student, so we asked her how old she was.  She said she is 19 and that last year she was a recipient of the school supply program and now that she is graduated, she wanted to see how she could help. She searched our name, found the volunteer page, and signed up!  How nice to know that she was inspired by the help she received from CCS to pay it forward.

 

Look for her story in our fall 2014 newsletter!

Just in time for school, 323 children eligible for free and reduced lunches received new backpacks and school supplies.  For the fifth year, the Christ Child Society of Summit and Bridges Outreach collaborated to collect hundreds of binders, spiral and composition notebooks, pens, pencils and much more.  In addition, $2,500 worth of additional supplies were purchased from funds raised by both groups.  It is estimated that each child received supplies valuing $65.  Parents were able to take the financial resources that would have been used for school supplies to pay for food, rent, and other necessities.Read more...
