Since 2005 the Christ Child Society has partnered with Women’s Care Center by providing a Layette of Hope for each positive pregnancy test.  This layette includes a onesie, a pair of socks and a prayer card, giving Hope that the mother will choose life for her child.

This campaign began in 1989 with a mailing to the Christ Child membership asking each member to clothe a needy child.  Each fall, letters are sent to members and “friends” of Christ Child explaining our clothing budget needs. 

In 2011 Christ Child embarked on our biggest fundraiser to date: Let Love Shine Dinner and Auction.  This annual event is held in the fall and features both silent and live auction.  The funds raised are crucial to meet the increasing demands of the ever-growing needs of underprivileged children in our community.   Visit our website for more information on this upcoming event.
