Annual Appeal

The Christ Child Society of South Bend has been providing new clothing to children in St. Joseph County since 1947. The Clothing Center on Scott Street continues to serve close to 3,800 children each year right here in our community. The Society also provides more than 450 layettes, which are distributed by our local hospitals.

Our mission of clothing children in need is made possible solely through the generosity of our membership and our community. The Christ Child Society receives no local, state or federal funding. All money raised in the Clothe-A-Child Annual Appeal is used to purchase all the essential clothing a child needs including coats, hats, gloves, shirts, pants, underwear, shoes, socks and layette items for babies.  All contributions are tax deductible and will help make a child’s life a little warmer and brighter.
