“Being a member of the Christ Child Society helps me keep in prospective what really matters in life, helping others. As a member you meet other women who are passionate about volunteering. My children all volunteer which I think was because of the example they saw at home. I have made many good friends working on CCS projects. I am pleased to be a member of the NCCS Board and will work to further the mission of Mary Virginia Merrick.”
