Collaborating with the Community.
We believe in supporting the community from the grassroots up - working together with other agencies, non-profits, and individuals to help make Whitecourt a great place to live and grow.
These are just a few of the projects and programs we are involved it - but we're always on the look out to for other great partnerships.
To help make Back to School as easy as possible for students and parents, Staples and The Community Lunch Box in partnership offers School Tools— This program is for families or individuals that are in need of financial aid so that each family in Whitecourt can obtain school supplies for the upcoming school year. Staples and The Community Lunch Box feel each child should have access to School Tools for an equal opportunity to learn.
