Christ Child Society

The Christ Child Society of Boca Raton is a group of volunteers dedicated to having a positive and immediate impact on the lives of under-resourced children in our community. We provide support to local organizations, such as Caridad and local hospitals, to aid children and mothers in need. We support key initiatives focused on Infant Care (layettes), Basic Needs (back-to-school supplies, Easter baskets) and Literacy (book collection & Reading Buddies). Meetings are held every second month. "Nothing is ever too much to do for a child."
