Welcome to the Christ Child Society of Summit

 

The life of a child is a promise for the future, but for many children 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.

 

We invite you to view our site and find out more about the society founded by Mary Virginia Merrick and her vision that “the personal element brings true charity to life.”

Annual School Supplies Drive is a Success!

 

The Christ Child Society of Summit and Bridges Outreach partnered to distribute school supplies to over 300 children in need in the Summit Public Schools.  Many thanks to our volunteers, young and old!  The anticipation on the young students’ faces and gratitude from families receiving supplies made for a very rewarding distribution process.  There is nothing like watching a young face light up as they”shop” for crayons, backpacks, and glue sticks!  Good luck to all”our kids” starting school!

 

For over a decade, our school supplies drive has been an integral part of helping our Summit families in need to prepare their children for school by providing free supplies.  “For many families in Summit, it is difficult to afford the high cost of the many school supplies needed each year. Our program is a thoughtful way for our community to help these families, and to give these children a fresh start to the new school year,” commented Marian Starr and Lois Melka, CCS Co-Chairs.
