Smile Cookie week-long fundraiser supports more than 350 local charities
OAKVILLE, ON, Sept. 23, 2013 /CNW/ - The annual Tim Hortons Smile Cookie
campaign is back to bring even more smiles to communities across
Canada. For one week starting today, Tim Hortons guests can purchase a
freshly baked chocolate chunk Smile Cookie for $1 at participating
restaurants, with 100 per cent of the proceeds being generously donated
by Tim Hortons restaurant owners to support local charities, hospitals
and community programs.
"$1 can truly make a difference during the Tim Hortons Smile Cookie
campaign," said David McMullen, Vice President Marketing, Tim Hortons.
"Through the generosity of our guests and restaurant owners year after
year, we're able to help hundreds of deserving local charities and
we're very grateful for that."
The Smile Cookie campaign started in 1996 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 across North America. Last
year, the campaign raised more than $4 million across Canada and the
United States. Nationally, more than 350 local charities are supported
each year through the campaign.
