Family & Community Support Services (FCSS) is a unique partnership between the province and municipalities or Metis settlements. Penhold is a municipal partner in the Red Deer & District FCSS Board. Under the direction and guidance of the Family and Community Support Services Act and Regulation, communities design and deliver preventative social initiatives, programs and services that are shown to enhance the social well-being of individuals, families and/or the community.

April 18 to 24 is National Volunteer Week! 
The Town of Penhold would like to express our many thanks for all the amazing volunteers in our community who selflessly give their time. Volunteers are one of the many reasons Penhold is a great place to live!

Penhold volunteers have the opportunity to receive gift certificates for delicious sweets and have their names entered into a draw for one of many gift baskets, all from Penhold businesses. 
Contact Jennifer at FCSS: (403) 886-3288 or jblaylock@townofpenhold to receive your special gift. 
*Limited quantities available. If gift certificates run out, you can still be entered to win a gift basket. 
*Gift Cards will be available for pick up the week of April 12th.*
