SUMMIT, NJ -The Christ Child Society of Summit (CCS) and Bridges Outreach will again partner, for the seventh consecutive year, to collect next year’s school supplies for the approximately 500 Summit Public School children in need. 
 
During the week of June 1-5, collection bins will be located throughout Summit, including:

- The entrances to St. Teresa’s Church and Memorial Hall
- 36 Woodland Avenue
 
Residents can help by donating some of the following new items: 
 
- Binders (1”, 2”, and 3”)
- Three-hole Pencil Cases
- Subject Dividers
- Two-Pocket Folders
- Marble Composition Books 
 
- Loose Leaf Paper (wide and college ruled)

- Eight-Pack Colored Pencils or Thin Markers
- #2 Pencils and Erasers,
- Pens (Blue, Black & Red)
- Highlighters 
- 3" x 5" lined Note cards
- Glue Sticks
 
“It is difficult for many families in Summit to afford the high cost of their children’s school supplies. It is wonderful how the community pulls together to help give these children what they need for a fresh start to the new school year,” said Sally Golding and Jane Murphy, CCS Co-Chairs.

In August of 2014, the CCS and Bridges provided 385 elementary, middle, and high school children in Summit, eligible for free or reduced lunch, with new backpacks and school supplies.  Parents were able to take the financial resources that would have been used for school supplies to pay for food, rent, and other necessities.

 
The Christ Child Society is a non-profit association of volunteers dedicated to serving at-risk children in the area. Bridges is an outreach program for the homeless delivering food, clothing, toiletries, and other necessities to those who are homeless or in need in New York City, Newark, and Irvington every week, and opens its doors to neighbors in need every Friday. 
 
Christ Child Society and Bridges receive the donations and grants from their partners, including the Summit Luminary Fund, the Junior League of Summit, the Summit Area Public Foundation, Merrill Lynch employees, St. Teresa’s Church, as well as private donations.

Fear of Rising Rates? Remember The Reason You Own Bonds

If the current interest environment has you concerned about your bond portfolio, remember why you are investing in bonds.  The role bonds, or fixed income, play in a portfolio is not solely based on performance.  Bonds are used to offer stability, particularly when stock market volatility is rising. Rate hikes can dampen bond performance, but keep perspective on how rising rates impact ...

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.

 

Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
