The 10th annual Red Wagon Layette Shower presented by the Christ Child Society Oct. 9 at Sylvania Country Club raised nearly $4,000 and collected almost 10,000 diapers that filled nearly four SUVs. They will be used for the 800 layettes to be distributed. This is just one of the many programs operated by the society for the welfare and care of children in Toledo. Other programs include parenting, reading, and clothing.

Ladies dined on a gourmet lunch served at tables centered with the signature red wagons in memory of founder Mary Virginia Merrick.

Thanks go to event chairmen Sandra Goodwin, Karen Jarrett, and Kathy Pancone, assisted by the class of 2011.
