With only two weeks left before its grant application deadline, the Community Foundation of Medicine Hat & Southeastern Alberta is reminding area non-profit groups to submit their applications as soon as possible.

Earlier this summer the foundation announced it was resuming its community grants process after a year-long break. Applications are being accepted until the close of business on September 15, 2009.

“We are happy to see grant applications received in our office daily,” said executive director Mike Christie. “Several organizations have worked very hard on their applications and we look forward to presenting them all to our grants committee.”

The organization strives to make grants that will better the life of area residents, and Christie says they are particularly looking forward to assisting community groups during this economic downturn.

The Post is a non-profit, second-hand store located in Downtown Medicine Hat that primarily focuses on clothing and furniture. All proceeds that are made go to Metal Health organizations and The Post is primarily staffed by volunteers, some with health conditions who are getting experience to get back on their feet and perhaps find their way into the work-field. They usually have a wide selection of clothing for all ages and sizes and at least a dozen couches, chairs or tables at any time.

Other objects that can be found include lamps, footwear, sporting and fitness equipment, sometimes video games, board games, televisions and computer monitors and much more. They also offer a small section of VHS, DVD and CDs.

Some cool finds I have seen in the store include a bow and arrow set (which I accidentally broke and then fixed) and a couple archaic Sega Genesis games in their original factory sealed packaging which Vaughn bought (and were worth 3 or 4 times the amount he paid, I think).

Donations can be made in front of the store, which can be identified by the usual overflowing bins by the doorway.

The Post can be found at 410 South Railway Street SE.
