What’s better than a cookie that tastes good? A cookie that does good! Tim Hortons Smile Cookie Campaign is back supporting charities in communities across the country.
For one week, from September 14th – 20th, restaurant owners donate the full $1 from every freshly baked chocolate chunk ‘Smile Cookie’ purchased to support local charities in their community and every $1 makes a difference.
“Again, this year, we will be supporting the local elementary Ontario Student Nutrition Program-Grey-Bruce (formerly known as the Breakfast Program),” says Saugeen Shores Tim Hortons owner, Dave Falconer. “It is such a valuable program that gives the kids a good nutritional start to the day and it often struggles for funds. We have supported the program for several years and are happy to continue.”
The program is supported by a team of volunteers in over 65 student nutrition programs that are funded across Grey and Bruce counties.
“The real magic behind the Smile Cookie Campaign is the local impact and we’re excited to be able to support local charities, hospitals and community programs again this year. Our guests, restaurant owners and their team members can feel incredibly proud knowing that the money raised during the campaign directly supports local Tim Hortons communities,” says Mike Hancock, Chief Operating Officer, Tim Hortons.
