Smile: It’s Cookie Week in Cranbrook

Tim Hortons cookie sales support East Kootenay Foundation for Health and the Cranbrook Health Care Auxiliary.

It’s Cookie Week in Cranbrook once again.

On Monday, Sept. 23, Tim Hortons restaurant owners in Cranbrook launched the  Smile Cookie Campaign — proceeds from sales of special smiling chocolate chunk cookies throughout the week are being donated to the East Kootenay Foundation for Health and the Cranbrook Health Care Auxiliary.

The $1 treat helps charities, hospitals and community programs across Canada in the cities where they are sold. For EKFH and CHCA this means the opportunity to purchase two reclining phlebotomy chairs for the Ambulatory Care Department and a broda chair for the third floor at the East Kootenay Regional Hospital.

Volunteers are out in force selling the cookies — at the East Kootenay Regional Hospital, they managed to sell 456 cookies on day one of the campaign and received over $50 in donations. The cookies will be on sale at the hospital all week, so check it out.
