In the seven years since Tim Hortons opened in Creston the franchise has been a continual supporter of the Creston Valley Hospital Tuck Shop.
Since 2010 the local Tims has donated $29,398 from its Smile Cookie campaign, helping the volunteer group’s efforts to purchase equipment and provide patient comfort in the hospital.
“Working together with the hospital Tuck Shop, this year’s Smile Cookie campaign was once again successful,” Tuck Shop co-ordinator Mabel McCowan said on Thursday.
The proof was in the pudding, and the amount of $2,377 was on a huge cheque presented by Tim Hortons manager Stephanie Pemberton and owner Nancy Lasak.
This year’s donation, McCowan said, “will go towards the purchase of a $5,000 mobile exam light that the Tuck Shop will be purchasing for the emergency room.”
