Mountain Lake Community Service (MLCS)

A History of Giving 



Mountain Lake resident’s support of Lake Wales began in 1929 with the funding of a new, modern hospital and later, in the mid-50’s, the Mountain Lake Ladies Auxiliary was formed to provide volunteer support.  In 1965, our residents raised $1 million dollars to finance a state-of-the art Lake Wales Medical Center. This history of giving back to our community was the genesis of the current Mountain Lake Community Service (MLCS), a non-profit supporting the needs of Lake Wales.

MLCS, through the generous involvement of Mountain Lake members, annually provide grants to over 20 organizations to help improve health care, education, literacy, the arts, child-care and other needs of our community.
