The 2014 Tim Hortons Smile Cookie campaign took place in the fall, and the outpouring of support from cookie lovers brought a gift of $3,500 to the Creston Valley Hospital.

“We are so grateful to Tim Hortons for working with our Tuck Shop to help purchase a BIPAP ventilator for our hospital,” said Tuck Shop president Mabel McCowan.

The BIPAP (bilevel positive airway pressure) ventilator is designed to combine ease of use and comfort with technological innovations that adapt to a patient’s condition to deliver enhanced ventilation therapy. The device monitors the patient’s upper airway resistance and automatically adjusts to maintain a patient’s airway.

Creston Tim Hortons manager Nancy Lascak reported that over 3,000 of the delicious chocolate chip Smile Cookies were sold, and all proceeds were donated back to the hospital through the Tuck Shop.

Whether buying a coffee and/or cookie or purchasing one of the many beautiful handmade items at the Tuck Shop, the partnership of Tim Hortons and the Tuck Shop is an important one. Your support of the annual Smile Cookie campaign is definitely benefiting health care in Creston.

To learn more about the activities of the Tuck Shop or to volunteer, contact Mabel McCowan at 250-866-5245.
