Tim Hortons is bringing more smiles to Creston with the launch of the annual Smile Cookie fundraiser.

For one week starting Sept. 23, Tim Hortons restaurant owners in Creston will generously donate all proceeds from sales of a special smiling chocolate chunk cookie to the Creston Valley Hospital Tuck Shop in support of the hospital. The $1 treat helps charities, hospitals and community programs across Canada in the cities where they are sold.

“On behalf of all restaurant owners and team members in Creston, I would like to thank our loyal guests for their generosity and support of the Smile Cookie campaign,” said Creston Tim Hortons manager Scott Seitz. “Tim Hortons is thrilled to support the Creston Tuck Shop with the funds raised and bring smiles to so many people’s faces. We welcome everyone to come in during Smile Cookie week to buy a delicious freshly-baked Smile Cookie in support of a great cause.”

“The Creston Tuck Shop is pleased to be working with Tim Hortons again this year,” said Tuck Shop co-ordinator Mabel McCowan. “We hope to raise $5,000 to be allocated to the area of greatest need at the hospital.”
