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.
