Patients and staff at Ridge Meadows Hospital will have much more to smile about this holiday season.

The Ridge Meadows Hospital Foundation will be the recipient of money raised from the first-ever Tim Hortons Holiday Smile Cookie Campaign.

From Monday, Nov. 13 to Sunday, Nov. 19, 50 per cent of the proceeds from every Holiday Smile Cookie from all six Tim Hortons locations in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows will go to Ridge Meadows Hospital Foundation. The other 50 per cent will go to Tims Camps.

The popular coffee and doughnut store has been holding a yearly Smile Cookie campaign for the past 25 years.

“We feel so very fortunate to be the charity of choice for this brand new SWEET Holiday Smile Cookie Campaign,” said Deanna Lackey, development officer with the Ridge Meadows Foundation.
