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.
Hard work brings $$
A recent giant “tailgate” sale earned more than $6,000 for May Court Brockville’s good causes.
First of its kind for the service club, the sale was held on a sunny September Saturday in the parking lot of the Brockville Legion. Featured from “tailgates” --actually long loaded tables-- were crafts, baked goods, antiques, gift baskets, an Irish band and fortune teller.
As always, dollars go to good causes in the community.
