The business raised $2,531 in one week selling Smile cookies at the store, with all proceeds going towards the foundation.

Tim Hortons baked, decorated and sold cookies for $1 each during the week-long campaign.

“Over five years we have donated a total of

$12,208,” said Tim Hortons’ owner, Kristine Hovind-Pelletier.  “That’s 12,208 cookies, or an average of 2,442 cookies in one week of sales during the campaign over the last five years!

“It couldn’t have been done without the support of our community in buying the cookies, and also our fantastic staff for the extra time and work in baking the cookies and supporting the sale of them to our loyal customers.”

Tim Hortons also helped send two Elk Valley kids to camp thanks to their successful Camp Day.

In total, nearly $4,300 was raised which will send Kayley Andrews, 12 and Ashley-Marie Joinson, 11 to Kananaskis Children’s Ranch from July 9 to 12 this year.

Hovind-Pelletier said Camp Day was really successful.

“We had volunteers from the fire department, RCMP and Ghostriders as well as the Mayor and staff that gave their time. Fernie Secondary School students came and painted the windows for us, and we had other fun activities going on throughout the day.”
