Christ Child has been such an amazing organization to be a part of. All of the society members are so generous and thoughtful. Everyone ultimately works together to help the children of Christ Child. I am very lucky and proud to be a member of Christ Child!

As an 8 year member, I am so proud of everything that Christ Child stands for. To see a boy that is so broken come stay at the House and leave as a well put-together young man is a beautiful sight to see. Christ Child is ingrained in our family and we will continue to support this amazing organization for years to come!
