Timmy’s Smile Cookie Program

Donna Paul, the store owner of both Tim Horton’s (Tower and South) in Wetaskiwin has a long history of supporting healthcare in this community with the annual ‘Smile Cookie’ campaign. This year the community of Wetaskiwin supported the campaign and bought enough cookies to deliver $10,760 worth of smiles to Wetaskiwin Health Foundation in support of programs and services offered in the Wetaskiwin Hospital. 
    Murray Warnke, Chair of the Foundation has observed the financial support provided by Tim Horton’s for several years.  “This cheque for $10,770.00 clearly illustrates how serious Tim Horton’s is about supporting their community with. We really appreciate what they have done for healthcare for so many years.”  
    The relationship between Tim Horton’s and the Wetaskiwin Health Foundation has been grown every year since 2004 when the Smile Cookie campaign helped raise $1734.00 to assist with the purchase of the greatly appreciated piece of medical equipment, the CT Scanner. Amy Dreichel, Sonographer II in the Diagnostic Imaging Department of the Wetaskiwin Hospital and a member of the Wetaskiwin Health Foundation Board knows first-hand, the importance of community support for healthcare. “It is gratifying to see a business in our community show outstanding support for our local hospital and it is the ongoing commitment of the wonderful people of this community that makes this possible. A big thank you to Tim Horton’s. They raised an overwhelming about of money; largest to date for the Smile Cookie Campaign. Over the last 5 years Tim Horton’s has raised over $44,000.00 for the Wetaskiwin Health Foundation.”
     High quality healthcare services provided in Wetaskiwin are important for all residents, but especially for seniors who find it difficult to commute to Edmonton or Red Deer for examinations and treatment. Top quality healthcare is also an important attribute when attracting individuals or businesses to the community. Top notch medical professionals follow top notch equipment so that is why each and every investment that is made to the Wetaskiwin Health Foundation is so important.
    Although Smile Cookies are only available for one week the difference they make will last forever. Just think of all the people who have benefited from the CT Scanner since 2004.
