Nipissing Serenity Hospice gets plenty of dough from cookie campaign

'The generosity of this region is amazing'
Smile Cookie

A cookie campaign has put a smile on Nipissing Serenity Hospice supporters.

This year in North Bay, local Tim Hortons restaurant owners Derek Bobowski, Ken Coughlin, and Brandon Moffat saw customers raise $59,836 to support Nipissing Serenity Hospice. This was the first year that funds were directed to Nipissing Serenity Hospice and it was a record year locally in terms of dollars raised.

“We are so proud and honoured to be supported by Tim Hortons and their customers,” says Gil Pharand, Executive Director of Nipissing Serenity Hospice.  “The generosity of this region is amazing. We are only 60 per cent funded so this support is so important for us to continue to provide the best in end-of-life palliative care.”

Tim Hortons restaurant owners and millions of generous Canadians across the country combined broke a new Smile Cookie record by raising $10.56 million for local charities across the country.

Last year the Tim Hortons annual Smile Cookie campaign raised $53,088 for Community Living North Bay.
