Community support never tasted so good! The Tim Hortons annual Smile Cookie fundraiser was a sweet success, raising $3,500 for Creston Valley Hospital Tuck Shop. Representatives from the Creston Valley Hospital Tuck Shop and the Interior Health Authority recently met with Scott Seitz, Tim Hortons Creston Manager to receive the Smile Cookie donation.

“I would like to extend a sincere thank you to everyone who helped to make this year’s campaign such an overwhelming success,” said Tim Hortons restaurant manager Scott Seitz. “Raising awareness for the Creston Valley Hospital Tuck Shop through the Smile Cookie campaign opens the door to more community involvement and ensures that the funds raised in our community stays in our community. I think that’s something we can all smile about!”

The entire proceeds from this year’s campaign will benefit the Creston Valley Hospital and will go to purchase a vital signs monitor and audioscope.

Nationally, Tim Hortons restaurant owners support more than 345 local charities through the annual Smile Cookie Fundraiser. In 2010, the campaign raised $3.1 million to help make a true difference in the communities where Tim Hortons operates.

The Creston Valley Hospital Tuck Shop is made up of volunteers with a purpose of raising funds to support health care at the Creston Valley Hospital.
