Smile Cookie Campaign raises over $36,000 for OSMH

(Wednesday, October 19, 2016 – Orillia, ON) — Tim Hortons restaurants in Orillia have presented Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital (OSMH) Foundation with a cheque for over $36,000 to benefit the hospital’s Paediatric/Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (Paed/NICU) project. The money was raised during their annual week long Smile Cookie Campaign in September. 

“We are so grateful for the support of Tim Hortons restaurants in Orillia for choosing us as the beneficiary of this amazing campaign,” said Pat Campbell, President & CEO, Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital. “The proceeds will have a great impact on the lives of some of our most vulnerable patients.” 

The Paed/NICU at OSMH hasn’t been updated in over 30 years and is undersized. A $2.7-million renovation project is currently underway which will see the space more than double in size. Essential equipment will also be replaced including incubators, ventilators and cardiac monitors.  

“The Paed/NICU project is entirely funded by community support to the OSMH Foundation,” said Nicole McCahon, Executive Director, OSMH Foundation. “That’s why initiatives such as the Tim Hortons Smile Cookie Campaign are so important to our hospital.” 

The Tim Hortons Smile Cookie Campaign raised a total of $7.2-million across Canada, supporting more than 460 local charities and hospitals including OSMH. 

The OSMH Foundation is currently working to close a $500,000 fundraising gap on the Paed/NICU project. To learn about other ways you can lend your support, contact the Foundation at 705-325-6464 or visit their website at
