|More than $30,000 to community projects|
May Court members voted at their October meeting to give $30,481.80 to community projects.
The largest portion goes to seven nutrition and food organizations in the Leeds Grenville area--$24,400. The money helps food banks and school meal programs.
Also on the list are Special Olympics, a music concert and individual dental and mobility needs. May Court is mandated to spend its money within the community.
May Court Brockville raises most of its money from its Thrift Shop at 75 King Street West in downtown Brockville. Members volunteer to work in the shop which sells gently used clothing, books and small household items, open 6 days a week.
A recent fashion show raised more than $13,700.
Three times a year members vote to direct the club’s dollars.
