The annual Tim Hortons Smile Cookie campaign is back this week, and 100 per cent of the proceeds from local sales of Smile Cookies will benefit The Stollery Family Centre for Childbirth & Children at Oak Valley Health’s Markham Stouffville Hospital (MSH).
“Tim Hortons’ generous and continued support reflects the values at the heart of our community. Last year Tim Hortons locations in Markham and Stouffville raised over $75,000 for childbirth and children’s care at Markham Stouffville Hospital,” say Allan Bell, VP, MSH Foundation. “Thank you for ensuring our youngest patients have the life-saving equipment needed close to home.”
The Stollery Family Centre for Childbirth & Children provides quality, patient-centred care for pregnant people, infants and children up to age 18. As a leading community hospital, MSH serves one of Canada’s fastest-growing regions. And as our community continues to grow, MSH must ensure it continues to not only meet the demand but deliver the highest quality care while doing so.
Government can’t fund all equipment and other priority needs. MSH must rely on community support to drive innovation and enable growth. Tim Hortons’ continued support ensures that our still-growing community can continue to receive the excellent patient care it relies on, today and into the future.
“At Tims, we’re incredibly proud of our annual Smile Cookie initiative that directly impacts each and every community in which we operate”, says Axel Schwan, president of Tim Hortons. “With the support of guests, restaurant owners, team members and volunteers across the country, we look forward to directly supporting hundreds of organizations in communities across the country.”
