During Sylvan Lake’s Centennial we’re going to attempt to quantify the generosity of our community with information and a running tally of donations to various groups and organizations.

Total – $5,642

• Sylvan Lake Seniors’ Association donated $842 to Sylvan Lake Food Bank on Monday. Members of the seniors association donated $421 during their December Christmas luncheon and that was matched by the association for the $842 total.

• Sobeys, at Sylvan Lake, contributed $4,800 to Sylvan Lake Food Bank on Tuesday. The money was raised through the Time For Sharing and Hampers of Hope programs.

Gena Williamson, of the food bank, praised the “huge dedication and commitment of Mary Ann and her staff”.

The business contributes product to the food bank on a weekly basis as well as holding fundraising events throughout the year. To provide information for this weekly column, please email editor@sylvanlakenews.com or phone our office at 403-887-2331.
