Tim Hortons customers bought plenty of sweet treats that will keep on giving in September as the annual Tim Hortons Smile Cookie campaign raised $2,839 for the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation.

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

The proceeds will be directed toward the purchase of priority medical equipment at Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital.

“Our job is to support the medical staff at the hospital by raising donations to pay for the medical equipment and facilities needed to provide a range of health care services to County residents,” said Hazel Lloyst, interim director of development with the PECMH Foundation.

The PECMH Foundation is an independent, charitable organization governed by a board of community volunteers. The Foundation was established in 1985 to encourage and co-ordinate a continuing high level of support for the Hospital. Donations from individuals, corporations, and local organizations share the belief that community participation makes a stronger health care system. Through continued generosity of donors, the foundation is able to provide funding for medical equipment, buildings and renovations to the hospital. The government does not pay for new medical equipment.

In the last decade, the Foundation has raised more than $6 million in PEC to purchase equipment such as the new digital mammography and ultrasound equipment for the diagnostic imaging department, vital signs monitors, defibrillators, an electrocardiography (ECG) machine and much more.
