Welcome to the Christ Child Society of Summit New Jersey Website :: Volunteer

 Area Baby Center

January 6, 2022 from 9:00am to 11:00am and 6:00pm to 7:00pm. Diaper distributions take place the first Thursday of each month at Twin Maples (214 Springfield Avenue, Summit). 


Volunteers distribute diapers to our clients every month, during a morning and an evening shift. We hold an annual fundraiser; work with other community groups on diaper drives; and coordinate with the local foodbank and diaper bank to secure low-cost supplies for our clients. We’re a fun bunch! Join us! Please reach out to Cathie Westdyk at or Margaret Strong at if you are interested in learning more about this exciting new venture and volunteering for Christ Child of Summit’s ABC diaper distribution.


Sign up here.




Layette Assembly

Our next Layette assembly will take place on February 17, 2022 in Memorial Hall, lower level from 9:00 am to 10:30 am.  A sign up will be available a few weeks before.


Layette Assemblies are held 5 times per year at Memorial Hall.  Help is needed packing the baby clothing, blankets, and other items that make up the layette bundles that we provide to the free pediatric clinics at Overlook and Morristown hospitals.  Once packed up in our signature blue bags, we need volunteers to drop off the bundles in Morristown and Summit. For more information contact Ellen Purcell at




Tiny Toppers Knitting

If you are interested in knitting hats or other items for the babies we serve, please contact us!  It is the perfect way to help others while staying safe in your home. We can help get you supplies and patterns.   Also, if you have any extra yarn or needles you would like to recycle, please contact Cynthia below.


 Join us as we come together to knit adorable baby hats, or tiny toppers, for babies in need. We welcome beginning knitters (we’ll teach you!), as well as seasoned knitters who want to join us for an enjoyable get together! You will be notified of any upcoming events. Tiny Toppers are included in our layettes and given to babies at the free pediatric clinics at Overlook and Morristown hospitals.  We also donate baby hats to social service agencies such as Birthhaven, a home for single mothers, as needed.  For more information, contact Cynthia Tarantino at or 908-273-0046.
