Smile Cookie Week at the Barry’s Bay Tim Hortons is in full swing until Sunday, Sept. 25. One hundred per cent of the proceeds from the sale of $1.00 cookies will go to the St. Francis Valley Healthcare Foundation (SFVHF) for local healthcare needs. The Foundation raises funds for its local healthcare partners, including the Valley Manor, Madawaska Valley Hospice Palliative Care (MVHPC) and St. Francis Memorial Hospital (SFMH). Tim Horton’s owner Jason Armstrong said the local franchise supports the Foundation because “you don’t know how important local healthcare is until you need it.” This year’s goal is to raise $5,000 through the sale of 5,000 cookies.
