Welcome to the Christ Child Society of Summit New Jersey Website :: Annual Baby Shower

Each spring, the Summit Chapter sponsors an inspiring mass and baby shower luncheon.  This event serves as the major giving source for our layette program.  This annual event is widely attended and has become a highly anticipated tradition. 


Our 13th annual Baby Shower was held on Thursday, April 4, 2019 at Memorial Hall.  Once again, we had a great day of community, worship, and service.  Over 100 people were in attendance for mass and lunch, and we received many generous donations from members and friends.  The equivalent of about 150 layettes were received in monetary donations and layette items.

Due to COVID-19 concerns, our 2020 Baby Shower had to be cancelled.  We are, however, continuing to provide layettes to Overlook and Morristown hospitals, and to ensure that 100% of the demand is met. Because our shower donations did not meet our budget projections, we are gladly accepting donations to help us reach our goal of ensuring that all babies in need are provided for. Click here to donate.

2019 Mary Virginia Merrick Award recipient Angeli Breen
 Angeli Breen was our Mary Virginia Merrick award recipient in 2019.  Angeli has always volunteered tirelessly for all of our programs and events, especially our Rummage Sale (as head jewelry guru), in assembling and delivering our layettes, and has been making our beautiful shower favors (iced sugar cookies) for many years. She has been our publicity chair, and took over our layette card program in 2017.  As Layette Card chair, Angeli designed new cards and re-vamped our marketing, which increased donations substantially, making layette cards our top income producing fundraiser in 2018.
