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 recently received an estate of beautiful clothes and accessories from Bill Dziadyk. These belonged to his wife Dale, who passed away in August 2021. Many thanks to Bill for this generous donation.
May Court Thrift Shop thrives on donations of clothing and household items—yes, even valuable works of art and antiques. In turn, the generosity of donors makes possible the donations of money that May Court in turn gives to those in need in the community. All proceeds from the shop stay in the local community—for individuals and charitable organizations.
May Court Thrift Shop, 75 King street east in historic downtown Brockville is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
