September 2018 Meeting at St. Elizabeth Church in KC, Mo.

On Sept 6, the Ladies of Charity of Metropolitan Kansas City held its General Meeting at St.Elizabeth Church, Kansas City. Our Charity beneficiaries spoke briefly about their missions. Pictured are : Michelle Carlstedt, Villa St. Francis Director of Development; Shelli Lange, Seton Center Director Of Mission integration;  Brad Grabs, Founder of The Learning Club; and Jennifer Wewers, Caritas Clinic’s Director of Development.

Grabs explained how The Learning Club helps at-risk children develop reading and math skills. Volunteers travel to one of four locations and work one-to-one with a student. The program offers children an incentive/reward feature that motivates them to stay focused and goal-oriented.

After Mass and the meeting, an Italian buffet dinner was served. Thank you to the presenters for the update on the Ladies of Charity beneficiaries!
