Thank you to everyone at Tim Hortons! With the help of our entire community, Smile Cookie week 2021 was a sweet success. Thanks to our community’s support, Nanaimo’s Tim Hortons restaurants raised a record breaking $27,500.00 for the new ICU at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital.

In 2021, 100% of the proceeds were put toward purchasing state-of-the-art medical equipment for the new Intensive Care Unit at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital (NRGH). To date, Tim Hortons in Nanaimo has generously donated over $197,500! And they did this with the help of you, our valued community members, who bought all those delicious cookies.

Past donations have supported other vital projects including constructing and equipping the new $1.75 million Endoscopy surgical suite; $1.8 million in renovations and new medical equipment for the Cardiac Departments at NRGH and Oceanside Health Centre; and funding all the medical equipment for the new Emergency Department which opened in 2012.

We hope everyone is looking forward to sharing even more smiles next year!
