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.
Socks and mittens under way
It’s that time of year and the May Court Thrift Shop is blessed with a large gift of yarn from St. James Church in Maitland.
Perfect for Christmas creating, even a good selection of reds and greens.
May Court Thrift Shop, 75 King Street West, filled with lots of Christmas ideas.
