There were smiles all round Thursday as managers of the three Shuswap Tim Hortons handed over $6,000 to the Shuswap Hospital Foundation.
The money raised during the annual Smile Cookie Campaign will go towards the purchase of equipment for Shuswap Lake General Hospital.
The CT scan upgrade was installed at Shuswap Lake General Hospital in mid-June of this year and the Shuswap Hospital Foundation committed $205,000 in order to purchase this upgrade.
The foundation has already raised $133,000 towards the purchase of the upgrade and trying to raise a further $72,000.
“The CT scan upgrade is much appreciated by the diagnostic imaging staff and they feel that this upgrade greatly enhances the patient care they are currently providing,” says the foundation’s director of development Fiona Harris.
Those wishing to help the foundation meet its goal may do so online at www.shuswaphospitalfoundation.org or drop a donation off at the office in the hospital weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Or, mail donations to the Shuswap Hospital Foundation Box 265, Salmon Arm. B.C. V1E 4N3.
