‘Nothing is ever too much to do for a child’

To the Editor:
The Christ Child Society of Albany would like to extend our grateful appreciation to all those who supported our “Red Wagon” Luncheon and Fashion Show on Saturday, April 29, at the Italian American Community Center.

“Nothing is ever too much to do for a child” are the words of Mary Virginia Merrick, servant of God and the founder of the National Christ Child Society. Everything we do is to help children and we thank you for helping us support our mission.

Christ Child Society of Albany covers all counties of the Albany Diocese and beyond. We are currently delivering layettes, comfort bags, and books as far north as Warren County and as far south as Columbia County.

There is always so much to do, so many requests for help, and we are expanding services as much as possible to better serve children. We welcome new members always. If you would like to know more about our Albany Chapter, please contact Carol Kelly at or 518-698-6633.
