“The personal element brings true charity to life.”
Mary Virginia Merrick, Founder, National Christ Child Society
Mary Virginia Merrick’s words still resonate more than a century later, especially for the members of the Christ Child Society of Baltimore, revitalized in September 2012. The group is making a difference in the lives of hundreds of Baltimore-area residents through a wide range of volunteer efforts — all designed to serve the contemporary needs of children and families.
Through a variety of hands-on activities and other efforts, the group offers support with many different programs in three main areas:
- Education and Literacy
- Infant Care and Parenting
- Basic Needs
Volunteers participate in many ways: volunteering at one of our non-profit partners, planning outreach, coordinating or collecting donations, joining a knitting group, making a monthly casserole, sorting needed items, or making donations. The group includes professionals, college students, youth and adult groups, stay-at-home and working moms, empty nesters, and retired neighbors.
