The Christ Child Society of Summit provides layettes to newborns at local hospitals and other local social services organizations. Clinics are assured that every baby in need will receive a layette. In addition, through the efforts of the “Knitting Angels,” a hand-knit or sewn item completes each package.
Every Christ Child Society chapter in our country provides layettes to needy newborns in their area. The layettes are the signature and founding project of the National Christ Child Society. Layettes are one of the common threads that weave us together with all of the other CCS chapters. All chapter layettes are different, but all include the necessary items to get a newborn started in life.
Our layettes include 5 onesies, 2 pajamas, 1 outfit, 1 hat, 2 receiving blankets, 1 miscellaneous item, and one handmade blanket or knitted sweater.
