You can spread smiles this week and help two local charities all at your daily Timmie’s stop.
Beginning today September 17th if you purchase a smile cookie for $1.00 at any local Tim Horton’s locations, proceeds from that purchase go to ARCH and the Twinkie Foundation, each organization receives fifty cents so 100 percent of the proceeds go to the charities. The promotion runs until September 23rd.
Karen Lefave is thrilled that the Twinkie Foundation was chosen for the promotion. Lefave is one of the founding members of the foundation that provides financial support for food, accommodations, travel as well as other incidentals that are incurred when as a result of a child’s medical trips. This is the first year the foundation will be a recipient of the charity drive.
