Tim Hortons Smile Cookie Campaign

Proceeds from every Smile Cookie sold in the Lower Mainland supports BC Children’s Hospital Foundation

There’s only one thing better than a cookie that tastes good–a cookie that does good. From September 16 – 22, you can make each crumb count by purchasing freshly baked chocolate chunk Smile Cookies for $1 plus tax at participating Tim Hortons locations in the Lower Mainland, and know that the full $1 goes directly to BC Children’s Hospital Foundation–one of 550 Canadian charities, hospitals and community programs supported through the annual campaign.

During the campaign, restaurant owners donate the full $1 from every freshly baked chocolate chunk Smile Cookie purchased to support charities in their community. This year, Tim Hortons restaurants in the Lower Mainland are supporting BC Children’s Hospital Foundation, the only hospital in the province devoted exclusively to the care of children.

“Each year, BC Children’s Hospital provides specialized care to more than 93,000 kids throughout the province. The community support we receive makes it possible to help provide the best health care possible for these children. That’s why we are so appreciative of the support we receive from Tim Hortons and their customers who participate in the annual Smile Cookie Campaign.” – Maria Faccio, vice president of philanthropy at BC Children’s Hospital Foundation

“The real magic behind the Smile Cookie campaign is the local impact and we’re excited to be able to support local charities, hospitals and community programs again this year. Our guests, restaurant owners and their team members can feel incredibly proud knowing that the money raised during the campaign directly supports local
Tim Hortons communities.”

– Mike Hancock, Chief Operating Officer, Tim Hortons

Each year, Tim Hortons employees, franchisees and executives unite during Smile Cookie week to raise funds benefiting children being treated around the province. Since 2002, Tim Hortons has raised $2.3 million in support of sick and injured children at BC Children’s Hospital.
