Cookies usually make people smile. Friends for Friends volunteers had plenty of reasons to smile after receiving a cheque for $3,935 from Fernie’s Tim Hortons staff, raised during the Smile Cookie campaign.

“The bakers worked extra hard preparing the cookies,” said Kristine Hovind- Pelletier. “Thanks to our staff for all their hard work baking and decorating all the cookies.”

The two-week campaign sold 3935 cookies for $1 each with 100 per cent of the proceeds going to the local charity.

Friends for Friends is a non profit society that helps individuals and families in Fernie who are going through cancer treatment and offers them financial and emotional support.
