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.”

Our 6th Annual Blankets for Babies Day

was a great day of fellowship and fun! The day was made even more special with this year’s outstanding crew of students and adult helpers who braved the rainy, yucky weather.

 

Thanks to all the hard work of the fringers, cutters, sewers, inventory control and knot tiers, we were able to complete 115 Blankets and have 100 more “in progress” blankets to be completed by fringing and tying them at the Elks Club Blankets for Babies Night on March 22nd at 7pm.
This year’s goal is to provide 350 layettes to the free pediatric clinics of area hospitals, with a blanket in each.  We are well on our way to our goal of keeping lots of babies warm!  Thanks again to all who came to help, and for making this day a great success!
