National Christ Child Society’s signature program is newborn layettes. Each chapter of the Christ Child Society provides impoverished mothers with a layette containing newborn essentials.
In Atlanta, our layettes consist of the following:
Package of Size 1 diapers (8-14 lbs.)
Set of onsies (3, 6, 9 month sizes)
Set of sleepers (3, 6, 9 month sizes)
3 Sets of Booties
2 Receiving Blankets
Hand-knitted newborn cap
Baby's First Book
Various instructional pamphlets

To date, our chapter has donated over 3,000 layettes to those in need in the Atlanta area. A Layette Endowment has been established to support this program. Our Chapter received a grant from the Catholic Foundation of North Georgia to support our layette efforts. Layettes are given as an incentive for completion of prenatal programs at:
