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.”
layette cards for mothers day
What do you give to that special person in your life that has everything? How about a donation to the Christ Child Layette program with a Layette Card? It is a gift given in honor of your loved one, which provides a needy child with essential clothing and a warm, handmade blanket. Donations are often given in honor of a birthday, anniversary, or in memory of a loved one. Click here to order.
Its time for Our Annual School Supplies Drive, May 13-17!
Christ Child Society is partnering with Bridges Outreach to collect and distribute next years school supplies for the approximately 500 children in need in the Summit public schools. Last year, we were able to offer supplies and backpacks to over 360 elementary, middle school and high school students, eligible for free or reduced lunch, that attended our distribution in August.
We will have collection bins during the week of May 13-17 by the main offices of the Summit public schools, at the entrances to St. Teresas Church and Memorial Hall, and at 36 Woodland Avenue in Summit. Please think about helping these children by purchasing some of the following items. We are collecting:
1”, 2”, 3” Binders
3-hole Pencil Cases
Marble Composition Books
Loose Leaf Paper (wide and college ruled)
Spiral Notebooks (wide and college ruled)
8-Pack Colored Pencils or Thin Markers
3 x 5 Lined Note Cards
#2 Pencils and Erasers
Blue, Black & Red Pens
You may also make a monetary contribution toward the purchase of supplies. Please mail a check payable to Christ Child Society of Summit to P.O. Box 125, Summit, NJ 07902-0125, or click on Donate to the right to make a contribution with a credit card.
Distribution to students is scheduled for August 21st and 22nd at Bridges Outreach, Oaks Center, 120 Morris Ave., Summit, NJ 07901.
