Programs

Weyerhaeuser Pickleball Courts
Weyerhaeuser Pickleball Courts

In partnership with the Weyerhaeuser Area Community Club, Inc., starting in 2022, Source Energy Services will be providing $10,000 over five years to support the Weyerhaeuser Pickleball Courts.

The Weyerhaeuser Area Community Club and their partners have rehabilitated and converted two tennis courts at the Community Park in Weyerhaeuser into six lighted pickleball courts. As Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in the US, the courts are helping to make the community more attractive, bring more visitors into the area to enjoy the park and patronize local businesses, as well as give people the opportunity to partake in the sport.

Source Energy Services Arena and Rec Centre
Source Energy Services Arena and Rec Centre

In partnership with the Wembley & District Agricultural Society, starting in 2019, Source Energy Services will be providing $100,000 over five years to support the Wembley Arena and Recreation Centre. The Arena and Rec Centre is not only home to Wembley Wildcats Hockey but is also a pillar of the community with its many programs, fitness room, and rec centre.

“We’re very excited that Source has supported this community association like they have. It’s a large chunk of money for us and the board is just completely excited about our future with Source”

Eric Sundstrom

President of the Wembley & District Agricultural Society.

The Unlocking Potential (Up) Foundation
The Unlocking Potential (Up) Foundation

In 2022 Source Energy Services was a sponsor of the UP Foundation’s UP & Away Gala, which raised funds for the Foundation’s programs and services.

In 2021 the Calgary Source Energy Services Team also participated in the Calgary Marathon’s Charity Challenge and raised funds for the Unlocking Potential Foundation (UP Foundation).  In total $12,570 was raised by Team Source Energy Services, which went to support the UP Foundation’s Never Too Late program.

The Never Too Late program provides no-cost academic, social and emotional support to adult learners who want to complete their GED (General Education Development or high school equivalency). Learning occurs in community with a cohort of students who share the same dream: to become a high school graduate.

Fox Creek School

In 2022, Source Energy Services donated the funds to help Fox Creek School purchase a new planner for their Industrial Arts program.

The shop is now able to help students from grades 4 to 12 complete woodworking projects in a safer manner, while keeping the wood and materials costs down. In addition, the new planner allows the school to be more sustainable as they can now re-use wood and use wood that is not perfect.

Talk to Me Society
Talk to Me Society

In 2022, Source Energy Services sponsored the Talk to Me Society in Wembley’s Talk To Me Color Walk/Run.

The mission of the organization is to increase awareness of mental health programs for first responders in the community. 2022 was the 4th Annual Talk To Me Color Walk/Run, which is held in honour of Dustin Sieker, a first responder who lost his life to suicide stemming from PTSI. The monies raised by this event go back into the community. First, by funding two scholarships to the Community Foundation of Northwestern Alberta that the society has created, and second, by giving any extra funds to Youth Mental Health programs like AHS, Suicide Prevention, Mens Shed, and the EMS Foundation.
