History

In 1982 a newly established resident in the Cape May area, Mary Trengrove, contacted a few women and discussed with them the work being accomplished by the women of the Summit, NJ Chapter of the Christ Child Society.  So impressed were these five women by the opportunity to make a meaningful difference in the conditions of needy infants that they forged ahead, contacted the National Christ Child Society for approval and affiliation and began with a layette program.  Two years later having multiplied their number they received their charter.

Now an organization of 60 active members and many associates the Christ Child Society of Cape May County, through a firmly developed partnership with the social service agenciers and schools of the County, provides a broad range of material goods that create a measure of comfort and well being for needy infants and children.  Layettes, baby furnishings, new winter coats and shoes are given with joy.  We extended our involvement to food pantries, the County abused women's shelter and a transitional housing and econimic recovery program.

Because of the seasonal, resort based economy of Cape May County there is a transient population and many struggling families.  This motivates our Chapter members to continue to seek ways to honor the Christ Child by caring for his little ones.
