Donations for Ponderosa Manor will be accepted up to September 15, 2018

District of Sparwood will continue to collect cash donations (cheque, debit, visa gift cards, etc.) up until September 15, 2018 for the residents of Ponderosa Manor who lost their home in the August 9 fire. Donations can be dropped off at the District Municipal Office at 136 Spruce Avenue or mailed to PO Box 520 Sparwood, BC V0B 2G0.

Donations will then be disbursed based upon greatest need.

  • Only those who lost their primary residence will be eligible.
  • Applications will be weighted primarily upon whether the resident was uninsured or underinsured.
  • Consideration will be given where livelihood is affected; financial situation; and vulnerability (e.g. health, age, children, social network).

To apply for funding, please email sparwood@sparwood.ca and include your name, contact information, insurance status, and financial need.  To ensure that funds are disbursed to those in greatest need, we ask that you consider letting the District know that you will not be applying for funding.

If you have any questions, please email sparwood@sparwood.ca, call 250.425.6271 or visit the District Municipal Office at 136 Spruce Avenue.
