The owner of the four Tim Hortons restaurants in Steinbach presented Youth For Christ Steinbach with the proceeds of this years Smile Cookie Week.
Andrew Heidebrecht says thanks to a great turnout and amazing support from the community, they were able to raise $12,723 this year. He also explained why they chose YFC Steinbach as the recipient of those funds.
"YFC does a great job of contacting with youth in the community and spreading the word of Christ to them and we just wanted to partner with them this year and back them and know that they are supported by the community and by us. We appreciated the partnership, it worked really well this year."
Rueben Singh from YFC Steinbach says they know the Southeast is incredibly generous and this just proves that once again. He notes these funds make a huge difference for them.
"This is going to allow us to continue to impact the lives of the young people in our community. We have been working with a couple of young girls lately who have significant drug addictions so it allows us to keep our doors open to do that sort of thing, to sleep it off when they need to, to walk alongside them and to take them out for a hot meal, those sorts of things."
