Tim Hortons for Healthcare Workers

Thank you for giving back

Our donors are honoured to support dedicated staff of the Cape Breton Regional Hospital. The work the staff puts into caring for patients every single day is inspiring and our community is now relying on them more than ever as they work tirelessly to help flatten the curve of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Thanks to the donors to the Because You Care Holiday Catalogue’s - Gift of Staff Appreciation, today we were able to deliver fifty $50 gift cards for coffee, tea and treats to the staff on the front lines to be offered to staff over the next couple weeks.

Your generosity is helping them remember that our community is behind the important work they do every day.

In addition, local Tim Hortons owners generously matched the $2,500 in Tim’s gift cards that our donors gave to support frontline healthcare staff.

After we announced last week that we’d be providing all units with access to gift cards for Tim Hortons, the owners of the local business contacted us. They offered to match that, bringing it to $5,000 in coffee, tea, treats & snacks for our tireless healthcare staff.
