This week, Tim Hortons fans can get something a little extra with their double doubles.
Tim Hortons annual Smile Cookie campaign is back until Sept. 22, raising money for 550 local charities, hospitals and community programs across Canada.
Here in Sudbury, Smile Cookies support the Health Sciences North Foundation, the CTV Lions Telethon, the Sudbury Food Bank and Maison McCulloch Hospice***.
Tim Hortons guests can purchase signature chocolate chunk cookies, decorated with blue eyes and an iconic pink smile for $1. The full $1 from each Smile Cookie sold will be donated by Tim Hortons restaurant owners.
"Our guests, restaurant owners and their team members feel incredibly proud knowing that the money raised during the campaign directly supports local causes,” said Mike Hancock, chief operating officer, Tim Hortons.
In 2018, the Smile Cookie campaign raised $7.8 million across Canada.
***The list of charities supported locally by the smile cookies has been updated.
