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.

Thrift Shop and Covid-19
May Court Thrift Shop closed with the covid-19 epidemic but plans a re-opening in July.
Meanwhile, the shop is getting fresh paint and new carpet, made necessary after a water pipe flood. Merchandise fortunately was not damaged, and landlord is paying the bill.
Shop committee meanwhile is making plans for safe, healthy operation of the shop.
The shop is located at 75 King Street West in historic downtown Brockville. It sells quality used clothing and small household goods, is a favourite for regulars and for visitors to Brockville.
