It’s Smile Cookie Week at Tim Hortons across Canada. For $1.00 you can buy a chocolate chip cookie, with 100 per cent of the proceeds going to charities across Canada. In Lethbridge, the Chinook Regional Hospital Foundation will be receiving the proceeds from cookies sold.
The Foundation’s Executive Director, Jason Vandenhoek, says the money raised goes towards supporting the greatest needs of the hospital, with a large portion allocated towards the new mental health area.
Last year, the CRH Foundation received just over $34,000 from the Smile Cookie fundraiser. Smile Cookie week runs until Sunday, Sept. 19.
