One hundred percent of the purchase price of the United Donut will go to regional health care providers, including ECMC. (Not available on delivery or mobile app orders.)

Susan M. Gonzalez, Executive Director, ECMC Foundation said, “On behalf of ECMC’s heroic frontline caregivers and our entire ECMC Family, we thank Tim Hortons for thinking of all health care workers in our region, including those of us at ECMC. Every day our skilled and dedicated caregivers deliver lifesaving care to thousands of Western New Yorkers who depend on ECMC during many of their most challenging moments, including throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. As they have done previously with efforts like the annual Smile Cookie campaign, Tim Hortons has again demonstrated their incredible support for ECMC.
