BRACEBRIDGE, ON – If you like to have a cookie with your coffee and also give to a good charity, next week is your sweet spot.
The annual Tim Horton’s Smile Cookie campaign runs from September 16th to 22nd. Restaurant owners give the full dollar from every freshly baked chocolate chunk cookie with an icing simile that is sold.
