The spring grant application deadline for Mason Community Foundation is Mon. March 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 March. Guidelines and criteria are included with the application.
Readers of the Mason County News may have seen the recent announcement that the LCRA has awarded us a grant. These funds will be used to make improvements to the building. We would like to thank the LCRA for this generous contribution to our ongoing efforts.
The Foundation, along with the workers and volunteers of the Community Thrift Store, also thanks 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.
