shopMay Court members recently voted $47,087 to good causes in the community.

Dollar amounts were large and small, ranging from an MRI at the Brockville General Hospital to eyeglasses, hearing aids and a hospital bed for individuals. Five food supply groups received a total of $21,740. Fifteen area schools received contribution to their nutrition programs.

All dollars stay in the community. Most of the money comes from proceeds at the May Court Thrift Shop where members volunteer at the used goods shop located on King street in downtown Brockville. A recent Fall Market also raised dollars.
