Tim Hortons in Creighton is joining others across the country in the annual Smile Cookie Campaign this week. It raises money for 550 local charities, hospitals and community programs across Canada. All this week Tim Hortons guests will be able to purchase signature chocolate chunk cookies decorated with blue eyes and an iconic pink smile for a dollar plus applicable taxes and the full dollar will be donated by Tim Hortons restaurant owners.
Money raised at the Creighton Tim Hortons location this week will be donated to Creighton Community School’s new land base program so they will have students there today and Tuesday from 1 to 2 and Wednesday morning from 9 to 10 helping to decorate cookies.
Tim Hortons Chief Operating Officer Mike Hancock says their brand has been built up over the last 55 years and this is one of many initiatives that allows them to give back to the communities in which they live and work. Last year the Smile Cookie campaign raised 7.8 million dollars across Canada.
