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.
Black Friday Sale at our Thrift Shop
In conjunction with the downtown Black Friday Sales events, we held a 50% off sale on November 26th. Shoppers young and old helped to make this a very successful day. As usual, our hard-working members, who diligently monitored the current Covid-19 protocols, managed the continuous stream of shoppers who were eager to pick up some terrific bargains. As many people were likely unable to get to the shop on Friday, the Sale was extended to Saturday and our very capable students once again looked after the many customers who came in.
As a result of everyone’s efforts the sales for the 2 days totalled almost $1400. This will continue to help towards funding the many needs of our communities.
