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.”

 2014 School Supplies Drive RECAP

The Christ Child Society of Summit has partnered again with Bridges Outreach to collect and distribute school supplies for the approximately 500 children in need in the Summit Public schools.  This year, we were able to offer supplies and backpacks to 385 elementary, middle school and high school students, eligible for free or reduced lunch, that attended our distribution in August.

It’s not too late to contribute to our drive! 

You may make a donation towards the purchase of school supplies for next year by clicking on the Donate button on the right, or by mailing a check to Christ Child Society of Summit (memo: school supplies) P.O. Box 125, Summit, NJ 07902-0125. Please help these children start the year off with the tools they need to learn.
