Tim Hortons is bringing more smiles to Creston with the kickoff of the annual Smile Cookie campaign. For one week starting Monday, Tim Hortons customers can purchase a freshly baked chocolate chunk Smile Cookie for $1 at Tim Hortons in Creston, with 100 per cent of the proceeds donated by the Tim Hortons restaurant owners to support the Creston Valley Hospital Tuck Shop.

“The Smile Cookie campaign has continuously been successful year after year thanks to our loyal guests for their kindness and support,” said Nancy Lascak of Creston’s Tim Hortons. “We are honoured to support the local Tuck Shop 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 in Creston has generously donated and supported the annual cookie campaign for the past several years.

This year’s campaign will help to fund equipment or provide patient comforts at the Creston Valley Hospital.

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.
