New York, NY | September 13, 2021 07:02 AM Eastern Daylight Time
Every year, Tim Hortons restaurant owners show their dedication to supporting their communities through the annual week-long Smile Cookies campaign. The annual campaign sees 100% of the purchase from each Smile Cookie – a chocolate chunk cookie topped with pink and blue icing drawing out a smile – donated to local charities.
Last year, a record $245 thousand was raised to support over 27 charities and hospitals across the country. Back again for its 25th year, Tim Hortons Smile Cookie week is a much-anticipated event in so many U.S. and Canadian communities.
“We’re honored to serve our local communities for the 25th year in a row,” says Ricardo Azevedo, President of Tim Hortons, North America. “Every year, it’s so inspiring to see Tim Hortons guests and restaurant owners rally together to give back to their neighbors.”
To participate in this year’s Smile Cookie campaign, visit your local Tim Hortons restaurant or place a digital order through the Tim Hortons app and/or website. The Smile Cookie sells for $1.00, excluding taxes.
