Casey Long

“I am very inspired by the work of The Christ Child Society and the motto of “Nothing is Ever Too Much to do for a Child”. My maternal grandmother was a member of the Cleveland chapter and used to hold babies at The Merrick House there. My mother, Abigail Sammon has served in many capacities in the Cleveland chapter and also served on the National CCS board. Women that serve inspire me with their love and devotion to others in need. I look forward to the opportunity to serve with so many that inspire!”

Casey serves on the 2018-2020 National Christ Child Society Board as a Vice President as well as a member of the Education, Membership and Expansion, and Program/ Chapter Service committees.

Casey founded the Atlanta chapter of The Christ Child Society in 2003 with then Co-President Anne Marie Newman. She has served as Membership Chair, Outreach and Social chairs, and Secretary. Most recently she served as President of the Atlanta chapter from 2016-2018. She is currently chair of Elizabeth’s Garden, the signature project of CCS of Atlanta, GA.
