Have you Smiled yet Today?

Tim Hortons annual Smile Cookie campaign is back to bring even more smiles to communities across Canada! Starting today for one week, Tim Hortons guests can purchase a freshly baked chocolate chunk Smile Cookie for $1 plus tax at participating restaurants, with 100 per cent of the proceeds being donated by Tim Hortons restaurant owners to ARCH Hospice!

“The simple act of buying a Smile Cookie for only one dollar will have a direct impact on charities in your own community,” says David Clanachan, President and Chief Operating Officer, Tim Hortons Canada. “Through the generosity of our guests and restaurant owners year after year, we continue to raise millions of dollars to help hundreds of deserving local charities.”

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. With blue eyes and a pink smile, the Smile Cookie has become an iconic symbol of the commitment of Tim Hortons guests and restaurant owners to strengthen their communities. Last year, the campaign raised $5.3 million across Canada and supported more than 350 local charities.

To celebrate ARCH Hospice being the Smile Cookie charity in Sault Ste. Marie this year, volunteers and staff dressed as giant cookies and handed out flyers at local Tim Hortons on Monday (pictured above). Expect to see more life-sized cookies at local Tim Hortons during the morning hours on Friday of this week! If you would like to pre-order your cookies by the dozen (we only need one day in advance!), please contact ARCH Hospice at [email protected] or call 705-942-1556 extension 223.
