Members of the Christ Child Society know the difficulties associated with being a new mom, especially when you are on hard times. Operating from St. Peter and Paul Church in Institute, the Christ Child Society of Door County collects items for infants and puts them in bags called layettes, giving new moms a chance to start on the right foot even if they do not have money. Debbie Wegner says members know the overwhelming feeling a mother has when they first bring their newborn home for the first time.
Chartered in 1998, Wegner says the Christ Child Society of Door County has already helped 21 families this year. You can contact the organization if you would like to join their efforts or attend their membership luncheon scheduled for August 2.
