About Childerguild

Founded in 1910, by 13 benevolent women who had no children of their own, Childerguild was formed to benefit the obstetrics and pediatrics departments at Silver Cross Hospital. 

In the early years, Childerguild raised funds through private donations and by hosting card parties.  The members took a hands-on approach to this organization by sewing layettes and clown dolls for the pediatric patients at Silver Cross.  During the war years, members knitted sweaters for the military and gave financial support to the American Red Cross, Navy League and the Salvation Army.  As ardent supporters of the children in our community, Childerguild also made contributions to the Herald News free milk fund and the local community chest. 

The local charitable organization has donated more than $3 million to support women’s and children’s services at Silver Cross Hospital. Today, Childerguild raises funds by hosting their annual Ball and by operating the hospital’s gift shop.  

Childerguild Gift Shop

The Childerguild Gift Shop is open 7 days a week, Sunday through Saturday and is located in the main lobby at Silver Cross Hospital.  Customers are offered many unique items in the Childerguild Gift Shop, which features exclusive gifts, jewelry, handbags, toys, books and baby clothes.  For more information, call the Silver Cross Volunteer Services Department at (815) 300-7117.
