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

Layette Program


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, a hand-knit item, a handmade fleece blanket, and a board book complete 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, one handmade fleece blanket, a knitted hat and often a sweater or booties, and a baby board book. In the winter months, we also provide a warm snowsuit to babies who need them.


Since our first baby shower in 2007, we have touched well over 2,000 babies in our community by providing them with essential clothing. In 2019, we provided 360 babies with layettes and provided 60 additional “mini” layettes with some basic essentials as requested by clinic staff.

Snowsuits for Babies in Need


During the cold winter months, we are committed to providing a warm snowsuit to children who need them while visiting the clinics at Overlook and Morristown hospitals.  Many snowsuits are donated by the parishioners of St. Teresa of Avila as a part of their Advent Giving Tree program.  In 2014, some were donated by Junior League members who “sponsored” the snowsuits at their Christmas and January meetings.  We thank the JLS and St. Teresa’s for their generosity.
