The fall grant application deadline for Mason Community Foundation is Tues. September 3rd. Non-profit groups and organizations desiring funds for projects that benefit the Mason community may pick up an application at the Community Thrift Store. Please remember that we are in our new location-206 Moody St. (the old Post Office). Completed applications are to be returned to the Thrift Store, or to Hinckley’s Country Store by the deadline. Notification of grant awards will be no later than the end of September. Guidelines and criteria are included with the application.
The Mason Community Foundation (MCF) has awarded grants to help a wide range of needs in our town and county. Two groups who recently received grants are pictured above. Pat Reardon, D’Ann Stahl, and Rosemary Kruckemeyer, representing MCF, stopped by to visit with Wilda Faye Jennings last week. Mr. Reardon delivers meals to Mrs. Jennings, and others who are a part of the Mason Senior Center meals-on-wheels nutrition program. Brent Hinckley, Pat Reardon, and Charles Plueneke presented a check to Dane Phillips, who accepted it on behalf of the Lions Club. These funds will be used for the upcoming Gem of the Hill Country fun run that has been sponsored by the local Lions Club for the last several years.
The Foundation, along with the workers and volunteers of the Community Thrift Store thank those who have supported us through donations and purchases. As time goes by, we all see that this is truly a COMMUNITY effort, and that it would not be a success without the support of so many. Store hours are M-F 10-5, and Sat 10-4. Donations may be dropped off at the rear of the building. We are not allowed to sell used mattresses. Please dispose of them at the City Landfill.
