Brockville May Court Club members at their October meeting voted $15,650.98 to support good works in the community.
This amount is in addition to annual contribution of $25,740 already budgeted.
All monies stay in the community and are raised mostly through sales at the May Court Thrift Shop, located at 75 King St. W., in historic downtown Brockville.
Funding requests are voted three times a year: October, January and April. This month Special Olympics, Pathfinders and Rangers, Meals-on-Wheels and Weekender meals for school children were major recipients. May Court also funds special needs for disabled, dental and eye requests.
Nutrition needs are a special concern. Annual funding goes to food banks, Loaves&Fishes and school nutrition programs.
May Court members have been busy creating during the covid shutdown.
Members are crocheting afghans, knitting dishcloths, creating aprons with adjustable ties. Sniff for lavender-filled gifts for your sewing friends. A special section in the shop features members’ crafts.
May Court Thrift Shop at 75 King Street West in historic downtown Brockville is open again Tuesday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
