Until Sunday, you can support local charities by buying a festive cookie at Tim Hortons. The first ever Holiday Smile Cookie Campaign lasts until Nov. 19.
“We’re so excited to be part of the very new Holiday Smile Cookie Campaign,” says Sarah Thatcher with Food4Kids Muskoka. “Our volunteers go into local Tim Hortons locations and decorate cookies, and we receive 50 per cent of the proceeds for those cookies to go directly into our programming.”
According to Thatcher, Huntsville’s four Timmie’s locations will help Food4Kids provide food to dozens of students across Huntsville.
“Our goal is to provide weekend food packs to children over that 48-hour gap, essentially,” says Thatcher. “There are food programs, breakfast programs, that happen in school over the week. But there is really a window of time when children go home and may not have adequate nutrition for the weekend. So that’s where we come in.”
Bracebridge’s two locations will support Big Brothers Big Sisters of Muskoka and its youth mentorship programs, while in Gravenhurst the coffee shop’s two locations will send proceeds to the Salvation Army Food Bank. The other 50 per cent of the proceeds go towards Tim Hortons Foundation camps.
