Christ Child Society of Fort Wayne
The first layette of infant clothes made by Mary Virginia Merrick and her friends is delivered to an impoverished mother in Washington D.C.
The Christ Child Society is formed by Mary Virginia Merrick.
The Fort Wayne Chapter of the Christ Child Society is established by 17 local women.
200 new coats are distributed to school children.
Membership grows to over 100 women.
Nearly 200 members strong, the Fort Wayne chapter distributes over 2000 coats and 350 layettes annually. We continue to share and expand on Mary Virginia Merrick's vision and seek ways to fill critical needs in today's social services. With the generosity of our community and the dedication of our volunteers we hope to break the cycle of poverty with our outreach to at-risk children.
