Timmy’s brings a smile with cookies

Smile Cookie campaign all this week at local Tim Horton's stores, benefitting YMCA Strong Kids Healthy Snack Program.

Tim Hortons is bringing more smiles to the Central Okanagan with the kickoff of the annual Smile Cookie campaign.

All this week, Tim Hortons patrons can purchase a freshly baked chocolate chunk Smile Cookie for $1 at participating restaurants throughout the Okanagan Valley, with 100 per cent of the proceeds proudly donated by Tim Hortons franchise restaurant owners to support the YMCA Strong Kids Healthy Snack Program.

“The Smile Cookie campaign has continuously been successful year after year thanks to our loyal guests for their kindness and support,” said Chris Chapman, a Kelowna Tim Hortons restaurant franchisee.

“We are honoured to support the YMCA Strong Kids Healthy Snack Program with all of the proceeds raised and to share smiles with all of our dedicated Guests.

“Stop by a restaurant this week and purchase your freshly baked Smile Cookie to support a great cause.”

Tim Hortons restaurant owners and customers in Kelowna generously donated more than $30,000 for the YMCA Strong Kids Healthy Snacks Program last year.

What began as a way to fundraise for the Hamilton Children’s Hospital in Ontario in 1996, has grown into a major fundraising event across North America.

In 2013, the Smile Cookie campaign raised $5 million across Canada and the United States.

Nationally, Tim Hortons restaurant owners support more than 500 local charities through the campaign.

New this year, Canadians can share their Smile Cookie Selfies with friends and family.

Simply take a picture of yourself with your delicious Smile Cookie then share via Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using #SmileCookie.
