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, the Christ Child Society is a non-profit association of approximately 6,000 volunteers in 40 chapters throughout the country that are dedicated to the service of needy children. 

The Summit Chapter of the Christ Child Society, chartered just four years ago, now includes over 110 local women that dedicate themselves to providing aid and supplies to at-risk children in Summit and neighboring towns.  Summit Chapter members assemble and deliver layettes (essential bundles of clothing) 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 in Summit.
