Joan Smith from St. Marys is donating 100% of proceeds from sales of Smile Cookies to St. Marys Healthcare Foundation
Tim Hortons restaurant owners and millions of generous Canadians across the country combined broke a new Smile Cookie record by raising $10.56 million for local charities across the country.
This year in St. Marys, local Tim Hortons restaurant owner Joan Smith and guests helped raise $11,711 to support St. Marys Healthcare Foundation. For over 7 years, Tim Hortons, St. Marys has been supporting the St. Marys Memorial Hospital. Over $50,000 has been raised since then. That’s 50,000 cookies decorated, and over 50,000 cookies consumed by our amazing community. This year, the funds will be used to purchase an “Occular Tonopen” for improved eye care at our Emergency department, and to purchase a “Reagent/Specimen Refrigerator” that will hold supplies and patient samples for In-Patients, Emergency Patients and our Lab.
St. Marys Healthcare Foundation Executive Director Krista Linklater said, “We are truly fortunate to have an incredible partnership with Tim Hortons (Joan & Paul especially), and are forever grateful for the community’s support!”
“We were absolutely blown away by the generosity of Canadians for our annual Smile Cookie campaign,” says Tim Hortons Chief Marketing Officer Hope Bagozzi.
Tim Hortons restaurant owners across Canada will be presenting their local charity partners with Smile Cookie cheques throughout the next month.
