Harbourview Volkswagen

We had so much fun with our Smile Cookie Car Dealership Champions Harbourview Volkswagen this past September that they decided to carry on supporting our Hospital throughout October! In addition to buying and sharing over 45 dozen Tim Hortons Smile Cookies, they hosted a donation drive event resulting in an incredible $5,000 for our Nanaimo Regional General Hospital’s new ICU! We cannot thank these community leaders enough for their community spirit, kindness and generosity!
