While the life of a child is a promise for the future, for many children today 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. Founded in 1887 in Washington, D.C. by Mary Virginia Merrick, the Christ Child Society is a no-profit association of approximately 7,000 volunteers in 40 chapters throughout the country that are dedicated to the service of needy children.
The Summit Chapter of the Christ Child Society now includes over 65 local women that dedicate themselves to providing aid and supplies to at-risk children in Summit and neighboring towns referred to the organization through area social service agencies. Summit Chapter members personally assemble and deliver layettes to newborns in need at local hospitals and run an annual school supplies drive that provides essential supplies for elementary, middle and high school children.
