Donwood Foundation

Pastoral Care Fundraising Non-Event

Donwood Manor’s 2021 major fundraising event once again needs to adapt with current provincial guidelines still not allowing large gatherings.  The Foundation Board Fundraising Committee has planned a unique non-event fundraiser that will fill your bellies with traditional food – and your soul with song and the Word.

“Join Us” (in your home and online) on Sunday, April 25th for FASPA, accompanied by a short virtual program with hymns,  scripture, and inspiration with the theme of Take Comfort, God is with Us.

In your Faspa in a Box delivery, you will find all the classics:  pre-cooked farmer sausage, cheese, buns, pickles, jam, honey, mustard, cherry platz and even a special Donwood Manor blend of Cornelia Bean tea.

There are only 200 boxes available. Each box feeds four people…if you don’t have four to feed, you’ll have leftovers to enjoy!

Your Faspa in a Box is complimentary…but we are seeking donations in support of Donwood Manor’s Chaplain and Spiritual Care Ministries.  As per CRA rules, tax receipts will be issued for donations of a least $20 more than the food value. The food value of the box is $35.00. Therefore, a $200 donation results in a $165.00 tax receipt. The $35 deduction will only apply once per box  – i.e., it applies to the donation of the person who ordered it.

ORDER DEADLINE:  Friday, April 23, 2021

Free City Wide, East St. Paul and West St. Paul Delivery


Pick up at 171 Donwood Drive between 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

If you DO NOT wish to order Faspa in a Box but would like to support the Pastoral Care Ministry please indicate in the Comment Box with your Online Donation that you DO NOT want a box.  Otherwise we will assume that all donations include an order for a Faspa in a Box.
