Tim Hortons in Creighton is joining others across the country in their 26th annual Smile Cookie Campaign this week. It raises money for 665 local charities and community groups 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.
Tim Hortons reports the campaign is led by 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. The Smile Cookie has raised over 77 million dollars across North America since 1996 and last year alone raised a record 12 million dollars.
The Tim Hortons in Dunville Ontario sold the most cookies in Canada last year. With a population of about six thousand they sold 48 thousand Smile Cookies which works out to roughly eight cookies for every resident.
