Ladies of Charity

The Ladies Of Charity – St. Ignatius organization is a group of catholic ladies who volunteer our time to helping the residents of Davidson County with food, or financial help if they are experiencing a hardship in their life.  We are part of The Ladies of Charity of Nashville that has served the Nashville area for over 100 years and remain committed to those less fortunate.

During the year, we have parish food collections to help re-stock the pantries of organizations dedicated in distributing food to the needy and homeless. Without the generous help of our parishioners, we could not help as many people as we do throughout the year.  

During this past year, the Nashville Ladies of Charity Welfare Program served 1,386 households, which received $135,730 for rent and utilities. 1,686 households received food assistance; 675 families received food from our Chrismtas Basket Program; $8,000 from the Scholarship Program awarded to 4 area high school girls; 131 Volunteers assisted 420 patients playing monthly bingo at the Bordeaux hospital; and 24,000 volunteer hours were contributed by the members of our Nashville Ladies of Charity during the different programs connected with our organization this past year.

During the year, the Nashville Ladies of Charity operate three major sales events at our Nashville office in downtown Nashville.  100% of the money collected from the sale of items during these events are used to help our neighbors in Davidson County.
