Shower of Love

CARMEL-BY-THE-SEA – On Saturday, 4 December 2021, the Christ Child Society of Monterey Bay will be celebrating their Shower of Love event from 10am until 12pm at Carmel Mission Basilica‘s MacMahon Center, 3080 Rio Road.

Attendees will help the members of the Christ Child Society of Monterey Bay create 250 bundles of essential items for delivery to under-resourced infants by Natividad Medical Center, Catholic Charities, and Siena House in 2022.

Learn to knit baby hats or crochet a baby blanket, or donate new board books, onesies, swaddles, receiving blankets and newborn diapers and wipes. And, learn more about the Christ Child Society’s work to help local children in need.

The Christ Child Society of Monterey Bay is the local chapter of the National Christ Child Society, which was founded in 1887 by the Servant of God Mary Virginia Merrick. There are currently forty-five Christ Child chapters across the United States working to meet basic needs of under-resourced children and families, with most chapters operating programs that benefit infants and promote literacy.

All are invited to join the Christ Child Society of Monterey Bay in giving local babies a loving start this Christmas.

Unable to attend? Monetary donations for baby bundles are also welcome.
