• Tim Hortons Smile Cookie Campaign is Back

    Restaurant owners from London and Dorchester are donating 100% of proceeds from sales of Smile Cookies to Children’s Health Foundation and Investing in Children.
     
    Tim Hortons Smile Cookie is back! Restaurant owners and millions of generous Canadians across the country can come together again to raise money for local charities across the country.
    This year in London and Dorchester, the local Tim Hortons restaurant owners and guests will help raise funds to support Children’s Health Foundation and Investing In Children, London Ontario.  The funds will be used to support critically needed equipment and essential programs in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Children’s Hospital. The funds will also support Investing in Children’s inclusive child/youth based programming designed to provide nutrition, nurture literacy skills, and promote positive mental health and wellbeing for all children and youth in our communities. 
    “We at Investing in Children are excited and honoured to have been chosen by Tim Hortons London and Dorchester stores! This campaign will have a significant impact on the work Investing in Children does in the community for children, youth and families!” said Ted Gorski, Executive Director of Investing in Children.
    Tim Hortons restaurant owners across Canada will be donating 100% of proceeds from sales of Smile Cookies to their local charity partners from September 13th-19th.
