Smile Cookies back to help local charities, community groups

It’s Smile Cookie week at Tim Hortons.

All proceeds from the sale of Smile Cookies will be donated to 625 charities and community groups across the country.

“Every year, Tim Hortons restaurant owners and their team members are so excited to decorate our delicious chocolate chunk cookies with blue eyes and pink smiles so we can support hundreds of different charities across Canada,” said Hope Bagozzi, Chief Marketing Officer at Tim Hortons. “With the help of our guests, we’re hoping to make this the most successful Smile Cookie campaign in Tim Hortons history.”

“Every year more than 2,000 babies are born at RVH. As our community continues to grow rapidly, RVH is planning a bold future to meet the healthcare needs of our region. Thank you to Tim Hortons, as its Smile Cookie Campaign will support future renovations and expansion of RVH’s Birthing Unit to increase its capacity and upgrade the current space – because RVH is committed to giving its tiniest patients the healthiest start possible.”

Pamela Ross, CEO, RVH Foundation

Proceeds from restaurants in Barrie and Stroud will support the RVH Birthing Unit and Hospice Simcoe.

“We are very excited to be participating in the Smile Cookie Campaign again this year! All proceeds will go directly to programs and services that support people who are dying or bereaved in our community. “Now, more than ever, our services of providing high-quality care and support are needed. We thank the Barrie and Stroud Tim Hortons for their ongoing incredible support!”

Kelly Hubbard, Executive Director, Hospice Simcoe
