TORONTO, September 9, 2019 – What’s better than a cookie that tastes good? A cookie that does good! Tim Hortons annual Smile Cookie campaign is back on September 16, raising money for 550 local charities, hospitals and community programs across Canada.
For one week only, Tim Hortons guests will be able to purchase signature chocolate chunk cookies, decorated with blue eyes and an iconic pink smile for $1, plus applicable taxes. The full $1 from each Smile Cookie sold will be donated by Tim Hortons restaurant owners.
“Tim Hortons is a brand that has been built up town by town and city by city over the last 55 years and this is one of many initiatives that allow us to give back to the communities in which we live and work. Our guests, restaurant owners and their team members feel incredibly proud knowing that the money raised during the campaign directly supports local causes. We are excited for Smile Cookie’s return every September and to be able to support local charities, hospitals and community programs across the country.”
