The electrifying music festival, which saw more than 2,000 people in attendance, was held this past July (2022).

Oh, how sweet it is! This year’s Tim Hortons Smile Cookie Campaign was a tremendous success raising $28,928 for West Haldimand General Hospital (WHGH). The amount is nearly $7,700 more than last year’s Campaign, which raised $21, 236.

“We are absolutely thrilled and amazed by the support the Campaign received this year and we are so grateful for our loyal customers, and extremely hardworking staff for making this such a success,” said Shaun Salverda, owner of the Jarvis and Hagersville Tim Hortons restaurants.

All funds will go towards supporting the highest priorities at WHGH. The campaign was held from September 19th to the 25th.

“Every dollar raised through this campaign ensures that WHGH can continue to provide access to high-quality healthcare close to home,” said Lisa Hostein, Executive Director of the West Haldimand Hospital and Healthcare Foundation. “The strong show of support we have received from our friends at Tim Hortons and our local community really demonstrates how committed they are to making sure we have state of the art medical equipment available to the patients and families that we serve.”

The Hagersville and Jarvis Tim Hortons locations have raised nearly $100,000 in the last seven years for its community hospital.

The Smile Cookie Campaign was launched in 1996 and donates the full $1 price of smile cookies to charities across Canada. Last year alone, the campaign raised $12.2 million.

Tim Hortons in Hagersville and Jarvis and the West Haldimand Hospital and Healthcare Foundation sincerely thank the community for their support in raising these funds in support of WHGH.
