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.”
