The Sylvan Lake & Area Community Partners Association runs a program called the Tools 4 School which his in support of families with children in school needing school supplies. The program is for families qualifying on a sliding Net Income scale and who reside in Sylvan Lake and for surrounding county students.
The community of Sylvan Lake is a generous and caring community and when this program was advertised, the local citizens donated many supplies. Local businesses also donated and matched funds to ensure a successful outcome.
The Red Deer & District Community Foundation was able to grant $950.00 towards the Tools 4 School Project from the Sylvan Lake Community Endowment Fund. Because of this worthwhile initiative, 24 families, which included 45 children were able to benefit from this program, and the program is available throughout the year.
