Each year, the club aims to supplement its volunteer activities with a financial donation from the proceeds of the Cardinal Christmas Auction and the Mother-Son Dinner Dance. The money raised will help fund capital improvements and need-based financial aid for students.

Purpose and History of the Mothers Club

The St. Charles Mothers Club has served the school for decades and made considerable contributions to the community through its volunteer efforts and fundraising activities. The group is the central volunteer-organizing body for the school. In addition to our standing committees, which run specific events, mothers often are called upon to simply “help out” at the school.
