It’s Smile Cookie week and funds raised will support Chilliwack General Hospital

Sweet annual fundraiser organized locally through the Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation

This is the week to be indulging in cookies.

From September 14 to September 20, the entire $1 from every Smile Cookie sold in Chilliwack will support Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation.

Last year, Tim Hortons restaurant owners and guests across the country raised a record $9.8 million to support local charities through their annual Smile Cookie campaign. Back again for its 24th year, Tim Hortons Smile Cookie week will support charities in communities across the country, including the Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation (FVHCF) – one of 550 Canadian charities, hospitals and community programs supported through the annual campaign.

This year, Tim Hortons restaurants in Chilliwack are supporting the FVHCF which raises funds for vital equipment and programs funded or endorsed by Fraser Health. They serve the communities of Abbotsford, Mission, Chilliwack, Hope, Agassiz and Harrison Hot Springs. Funds from the Smile Cookie campaign will go to support the greatest need at Chilliwack General Hospital.

“We are absolutely thrilled to be part of this year’s Smile Cookie campaign,” says Liz Harris, executive director at Fraser Valley Heath Care Foundation “Tim Hortons has been a great supporter of frontline workers at Chilliwack General and Fraser Canyon hospitals and we are happy to be working with them to support the hospitals equipment needs.”

You can join in sharing the fundraiser online, by using the hashtag #SmileCookie and tagging @TimHortons & @fvhcf on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook.
