The Christ Child Society of Fort Wayne is an organization dedicated to child welfare. Its motive and spirit are the love of Christ, expressing itself in personal service for children and youth, regardless of race or creed, to honor the childhood of Christ.
Founded in 1998, the Christ Child Society of Fort Wayne is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to meet the needs of at-risk children and their families in our community. Our volunteer members give of their time and talents serving in the love and spirit of the Christ Child and in the memory of our founder, Mary Virginia Merrick, whose motto was “Nothing is ever too much to do for a child.”
We collaborate with area agencies to annually serve more than 7,000 children. Our service programs are made possible through the volunteer efforts of our members and the generosity of our donors.
