“NOTHING IS EVER
TOO MUCH TO DO
FOR A CHILD.”

-Mary Virginia Merrick, Founder of CCS

The Christ Child Society of South Bend has served the children of St. Joseph County since 1947.

Over a quarter million children have found the dignity of education and the joy of learning to read – thanks to the dedicated volunteers of CCS.
