In honour of the Feast of St. Joseph, which was celebrated on March 19, Regency Bakery in partnership with Doyle Dodge donated $1.00 from every ‘zeppole’ sold between March 15 to 19 to the St. Joseph’s Foundation of Sudbury.

That meant a $1,200 donation to the St. Joseph’s Foundation of Sudbury. St. Joseph’s Foundation Sudbury contributed significantly to the construction costs of St. Joseph’s Villa and St. Joseph’s Continuing Care Centre. It also plays an ongoing role in the purchase of equipment and to sponsor programs for residents of the care centres.

The Feast of St. Joseph is observed by Christians in commemoration of Saint Joseph, husband of Mary. Taking place during the period of Lent, a time of fasting, the holiday is traditionally a meatless feast in Europe.

Regency Bakery served their traditional ‘zeppoles’, fried dough balls that are coated in powdered sugar and filled with vanilla custard and amarena cherries. 

“We are grateful to Regency Bakery and to Doyle Dodge for this generous donation,” said Kari Gervais, president and CEO of the St. Joseph's Foundation of Sudbury. “On behalf of our residents and staff, thank you.”
