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.”

many Thanks for supporting our

8th annual baby shower


Our 8th Annual Baby Shower ushered in spring - in spirit, if not in actual weather!  Memorial Hall looked festive and bright, and a beautiful mass was celebrated by Msgr. Donald Guenther, with music by Angela Intilli and Greg Scime.  Over 100 attendees were there to support Christ Child and donate to our layette program.  We would like to thank our members and friends for donating and volunteering to help, and local businesses that provided us with food and drink (Zappias, Starbucks), decorations (Shoprite), and a fabulous door prize (Wool and Grace). We continue to be touched by the generosity of the community and the support of our mission to serve children in need. 


It’s not too late to make a donation!


Your generosity will enable us to provide babies in need at local hospitals with essential clothing and a warm, handmade blanket.


If you would like to make a donation to support our layette program, you may mail a check to the Christ Child Society of Summit, PO. Box 125, Summit, NJ  07902-0125, or click here to pay online with a credit card.

the junior league of summit Donates snowsuits


Many thanks to the Junior League of Summit who generously donated 42 snowsuits to the Christ Child Society of Summit so that we can provide warm winter outerwear to babies in need at Overlook and Morristown hospitals.  With the coldest winter in years upon us, the donation of these snowsuits was truly a timely, wonderful, and much needed gift.  We have already packed them up and brought them to the clinics to be distributed to those in need.  Junior League members “sponsored” snowsuits at their December and January meetings. We thank them for their generosity and welcome their community partnership.


Tiny Toppers Knitting Night

Our first Tiny Toppers Knitting Night was held on January 23, 2014 at 7:00 pm at Wool and Grace - Knitting and Needlepoint Shop at 102 Summit Avenue, Summit, NJ.  We gathered to knit tiny hats to include in the layettes that the Christ Child Society of Summit provides to babies in need at Overlook and Morristown hospitals.  Whether you already love to knit, or would like to learn how, this is a great opportunity to get out and knit together with friends.  If you are interested in joining us at one of our future Tiny Toppers knitting events, please contact Lori White at  You can also visit Wool and Grace anytime to pick up instructions and supplies.  Just ask about “Tiny Toppers!”
