CommentsThe May Court Club of Oakville is a women’s volunteer organization providing the community with service and funds, as well as membership fostering friendships. Our goal is to be a role model for volunteerism and community service.  
The May Court Nearly New Shop (located in the heart of delightful Kerr Village) raises a large portion of the funds our club donates to community services. It is a popular consignment store offering gently used, in style and in season women’s clothing. You will also find accessories, jewellery and housewares for sale. Our shop is run and staffed entirely by volunteers who give their time and talent to support the club. All net profits go directly to support our local programs and Halton charities.
