Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop Selling WCA Donuts
December 5-11 to Benefit Emergency Department Campaign

WCA Hospital
Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop owners Victor and Brenda Tarana join Becky Greenfield, Benefits Specialist for WCA Hospital, and Justin Stewart, Assistant Manager for the Brooklyn Square restaurant, to show off their WCA Hospital donuts which will be on sale from Monday, December 5 through Sunday, December 11 at all three Jamestown-area Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop restaurant locations. The net proceeds from the sale of these special donuts will help support the campaign for the construction of WCA Hospital’s new Emergency Department.

Jamestown, New York (Friday, December 2, 2011)—TWCA Hospital is once again receiving backing from Jamestown-area Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop restaurant owners Victor and Brenda Tarana. The Taranas unveiled their new WCA donuts which will be available for $1 each at the three Jamestown-area Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop locations (Brooklyn Square in Jamestown, Fairmount Avenue in Lakewood and E. Second Street in Jamestown) from Monday, December 5 through Sunday, December 11. Proceeds from the sale of all donuts will benefit Sharing the Gift of Health: The Capital Campaign for Our Emergency Department.

“As local business owners, we believe in supporting our community who has helped our business grow over the past ten years,” says Victor Tarana. “The proceeds from the sale of these donuts are above and beyond our existing $10,000 campaign pledge. We know that our community will come together and join us to support WCA Hospital and this vital campaign.”

“We are so grateful to the Taranas and so many other local business leaders for standing beside us as we strive to improve our patients’ emergency care experience,” says Karl Sisson, WCA Director of Development. “During this holiday season, by buying donuts or by making a gift directly to WCA Hospital, we continue to ask our community to help us reach our capital campaign goal and to share the gift of health for many generations to come.”
