East Kootenay Regional Hospital staff will be smiling after a recent donation from Tim Hortons.
The Tim Hortons Cranbrook team have donated just over $14,560 from their Smile Cookie fundraiser to the local hospital.
Brenna Baker with the East Kootenay Foundation for Health says this was a group effort with the restaurant and the Cranbrook Health Care Auxiliary.
“All of the donations from all of the smile cookies in Cranbrook at both locations, all of that money went back into lab equipment at the East Kootenay Regional Hospital,” Baker says. “So it raises awareness, not only funds. It raises awareness throughout the entire community.”
The annual fundraiser raised just over $300 more than it did last year.
