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.”

3rd annual blankets for babies

Was held on February 4, 2015 from 10 am to 8 pm

at Memorial Hall

Thanks to the helping hands of our many volunteers, young and old, we were able to cut, pin, iron, sew, fringe and tie adorable fleece baby blankets!  We finished 98 blankets that were in progress from last year’s Blankets for Babies day, and completed 84 more from beginning to end,

for a total of 182 blankets!  We will be working to finish some more blankets at Girls Night Out at the Summit Elks Lodge #1246 on February 26th at 7:00 pm.

Our signature fleece blankets are included in each layette that we provide to

babies and their families at free clinics at local hospitals.

Contact us at for more information.
