Money is available for community projects to benefit youth, but so far, the Summerland Charity Shop Society — Penny Lane has not received any applications.

Around a month ago, the charity shop society announced funding for legacy projects with a budget of between $100,000 and $400,000.

The projects must have a physical presence in the community.

Bruce Hallquist of Penny Lane said the application deadline is June 15, but so far, no applications have been received.

If funding applications do not come in, the society will consider a list of special projects from the Summerland Parks and Recreation Department.

The society operated the Penny Lane Bargain Outlet on Victoria Road North from 2002 to 2013.

During that time, Penny Lane provided more than $2 million for youth projects within the community.

Those who would like to apply for funding for a legacy project are asked to send a one- or two-page proposal with their idea, contact information and a budget to summerlandpennylane@gmail.com.

The society will contact the successful applicants by July 30.
