The Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation had something to smile about when Paul and Valerie Massey, owners of the Tim Hortons in Picton, presented $5,060 to Leo Finnegan, chair of the PECMH Foundation and Penny Rolinski, executive director of the Foundation.

The funds were raised through the 2015 Smile Cookie campaign September 14 – 20 at Tim Hortons and at the mobile coffee trailer at the Picton Fair.

“This year’s campaign was a tremendous success yet again, and it wouldn’t have been possible without the generosity of so many loyal guests,” said Paul Massey.

The Massey family, on behalf of the Tim Hortons staff in Picton has committed to keeping the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation top of mind by designating Smile Cookie proceeds to the County hospital for the next 10 years. As well, they noted they hoped to schedule the mobile coffee trailer again at next September’s fair.

“We are all smiles to receive this donation from Tim Hortons. The commitment the Massey family and Tim Hortons staff have made to our County Hospital is a sweet treat we will savour in the years to come,” said Rolinski.

Meanwhile, members of the Prince Edward County Quilters’ Guild stitched together a $2,000 donation for the County hospital’s LIFE SAVER Campaign.

The funds were raised at the July 2014 Quilt Show held at the Wellington and District Community Centre where more than 300 entries were exhibited. The Guild, which has about 70 members, wanted to give back to their community and the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital was top of mind when disbursing the funds.

“The primary purpose of the PECMH Foundation is to enhance the quality of patient care in our community by raising money for the priority equipment at our Hospital. The Foundation plays a critical role in providing funding for essential, specialized equipment,” said Rolinski. “This financial contribution from the Quilters’ Guild, which is handmade with love, will go a long way toward improving the quality of care for residents in our community who require this necessary treatment, close to home.”
