Tim Hortons gives back

Staff of the Sylvan Lake Tim Hortons on Wednesday were happy to present the proceeds from their recent Smile Cookie Campaign to the Ambulatory Care Centre for Sylvan Lake and Area.

A cheque for $5,000 was presented to members of the Ambulatory Care Centre’s Community Advisory Committee (formerly the Urgent Care Committee).

Committee chair Susan Samson said a business plan for the care centre was submitted to the Province in November. Word on the status of the submission is expected by late January.

Updates are available at www.sylvanlake.ca/urgentcare.

The Sylvan Lake Tim Hortons also made several other donations Wednesday. Other beneficiaries included the Sylvan Lake Christmas Bureau and the Sylvan Lake Area and Community Partners’ Association, who received $1,000 and $500, respectively.

Money raised through recycling was matched by the store to generate the funds donated.

See photos of the presentations in this week’s paper.
