Tim Hortons Smile Cookie Campaign
Thanks to Tim Hortons Smile Cookie Campaign restaurant owners, staff and guests!
This fantastic event raised $72,360 for Food & Friends program support in Mt. Forest, Harriston, Arthur, Fergus, Elora, Guelph and Shelburne! Guests were able to purchase a decadent, freshly baked chocolate chunk Smile Cookie for $1 plus tax, with the full $1 going to our local programs during the week of September 12 – 18. With this donation, Tim Hortons in our area has raised over $515,000 for the Food & Friends student nutrition programs.
"The purchase of even one Smile Cookie for $1 can truly make an impact in our community," said Simone Clarke, Manager, Regional Marketing, Tim Hortons. "We continue to be grateful for the generosity of our Guests and Restaurant owners who year after year provide much needed support to deserving charities including Children's Foundation of Guelph Wellington"
New this year, Tim Hortons had introduced an alternative way to take part in the Smile Cookie campaign. Guests could show support with the purchase of a Smile Cookie car decal for $1 plus tax, with the full $1 going to local charities.
The Smile Cookie campaign began in 1996 as a way to help raise funds for the Hamilton Children’s Hospital in Ontario, and has grown to become a major fundraising event at Tim Hortons Restaurants. Nationally, Tim Hortons Restaurant owners support more than 460 local charities, hospitals and community programs through the campaign and last year, the Smile Cookie campaign raised $6.3 million across Canada.
