Tim Hortons in Creighton is joining others across the country in their 24th 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 Smile Cookies decorated with blue eyes and a 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 today through Sunday will be donated to Creighton Community School so they will have students there helping to decorate cookies.
Tim Hortons reports the campaign is led by over 15 hundred restaurant owners across Canada and 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 a record 9.8 million dollars across Canada.
