Trees brightening up the night at Pincher Creek Health Centre can only mean one thing- it’s time for the 23rd Annual Trees of Hope Campaign. Tim Horton's in Pincher Creek are leading the way with a $1,200 campaign donation, the proceeds from this year’s Smile Cookies. Tim Hortons owner Mark Nelson and manager Shannon Comin recently presented the funds to Maggie Olson and Adrian Hartman of Windy Slopes Health Foundation.

"We really appreciate Tims getting behind the Trees of Hope and helping create awareness," said Hartman.
Proceeds this year are supporting enhancements planned to the local Emergency Department. “It’s really all about enhancing privacy and safety,” said Olson, herself a nurse. “The renovations will make triage more efficient, which leads to better outcomes for patients. It creates an even more secure work environment for doctors and staff, and privacy for patients and their families when they need it most.”  

The unique metal display created by Boulder Industries will be lit up on the grounds of Pincher Creek Health Centre throughout the holiday season. “We hope when people see those lights, they’ll think about making a donation to support health care in our community,” Olson said.

Trees of Hope flyers are now in mail boxes throughout the district and can be used to make a gift to Windy Slopes Health Foundation in memory of a loved one, or as a holiday greeting to friends and family. Greetings are placed on special decorations and hung on the tree in the foyer at Pincher Creek Health Centre.  Learn more about the Foundation and their activities by visiting
