Summit, NJ - Led by The Christ Child Society of Summit Blankets for Babies Chairperson Theresa Sweeney, Cheryl Mullery, layette chair, and Angeli Breen, publicity chair, took Joanne's Fabric by storm for a "Fleece Run" in preparation for the 4th Annual Christ Child Society of Summit Blankets for Babies event on February 3rd. Theresa, kept everyone on task and in good spirits despite the 5:30 am wake up call! She even used her southern charm to get an additional discount allowing the group to purchase MORE FLEECE!

The amazing staff at Joanne's Fabric in Succasunna helped the shopping trio select, measure and cut yards and yards of adorable fleece fabric. The goal is to make 250 fleece blankets in a single day to include in the layettes that the Christ Child Society of Summit provides to babies in need at Overlook and Morristown hospitals. Layettes are bundles filled with newborn essentials which help babies and their families get off to a happy and healthy start. The blankets are made by volunteers of all ages including middle school and high school students. Sewing and craft enthusiasts are encouraged to attend but non sewers are welcome!  If you can cut, pin, iron, or tie a knot, you can still help make the day a success and join in the fun! 

The 4th Annual Blankets for Babies Day will be held on February 3rd from 10 am to 8 pm at Memorial Hall at St. Teresa’s (across the street from St. Teresa of Avila Church, 306 Morris Ave, Summit, NJ).  To participate in this year's event, to make a donation or for more information, contact the Christ Child Society of Summit at: ccssummit@gmail.com.

The purchase of fleece for Blankets for Babies is funded by a generous Beacon Grant from the Summit Elks Lodge #1246.
