Do More 24
This year, the Christ Child Society of DC will be participating in Do More 24, a 24-hour giving event from noon to noon, May 22-23. Please help us in supporting our mission of helping children in need in the DC area.
With the support of our members and friends, CCS provides educational, emotional and material assistance to children through volunteer and professional programs in the DC area. Together we live out the legacy of our founder, Mary Virginia Merrick, who believed that “Nothing is ever too much to do for a child.”
