Our history begins with an extraordinary woman, Mary Virginia Merrick. She gathered family and friends with an idea to serve one newborn in need. This idea became her lifelong mission and has grown to over 5,500 members, in 45 cities and has helped thousands of children.
“The personal element brings true charity into life. The giver and the gift are brought together and the link is the Christ Child.”
Mary Virginia Merrick, Servant of God
