Who We Are 

The Christ Child Society of Akron is a volunteer organization dedicated to serving the needs of the children of Akron, Ohio.

We work in partnership with other organizations and agencies to give love and basic support to children lacking the basic necessities of life.

Christ Child's 300 volunteer members come from various  faith traditions and walks of life, but know that all children  deserve dignity if their lives are to have purpose and meaning.

Our Mission

"to aid and instruct needy children and youth and to uplift and brighten their lives through social work done by volunteers in the spirit of expressing personal love of Christ by personal service for His children bound by no limitation where need of aid is evident"

from the National Christ Child Handbook
