Brockville and Area Food Bank
On behalf of the Brockville and Area Food Bank, we would like to extend our gratitude for your organizations donation to our program. It will help exponentially toward the fresh items that we get to provide for the patrons of the food bank, specifically our fresh milk program. We believe highly in providing fresh, healthy foods to the people that we serve and this would not be accomplished without community donations and support such as yourselves.
New Years Eve Concert Committee
Each year the New Years Eve Committee arrange a series of concerts in Brockville's downtown historic churches between 6 pm and midnight. This year we have 13 concerts in six churches with music ranging from country to jazz to pop. All the performers volunteer their services as do the committee members and the churches provide the use of their sanctuaries for the concerts free of charge. There is no admission to the concerts; a freewill offering is taken with the proceeds going to a charity that is chosen by the church. Over the past 27 years, these concerts have raised over $150,000 for local charities..
Our only expense is printing posters, bookmarks and brochures to promote the concerts. The brochure includes a full listing of the concerts describing the type of music, the names of the musicians, the location and the time. Donors, such as May Court Club, provide the funding for these materials which typically cost under $1,000. This is the 28th season of these concerts which many now look forward to as a regular part of the celebrations. We are most appreciative of the support of the May Court Club and look forward to seeing many of its hardworking volunteers at our concerts!
Leeds and Grenville Interval House
The money from the Maycourt Grant means that the clients we serve in our Children’s Department will have access to therapeutic and recreational activities through our After the Rain kids club this upcoming summer. This allows for women and children to be connected to a Children’s Worker, talk about and heal from their experiences of abuse and create communities of people that they can relate to. The Maycourt grant gives us the opportunity to empower children and youth and give them the tools to set boundaries and understand their emotions in a fun supportive environment. Leeds and Grenville Interval House is so thankful for the support of the Maycourt Grant, and we are excited to start our programming!
