Tim Hortons is ready to bring smiles and raise funds for a good cause with cookies. The chain’s Smile Cookie program is back for its 27th year, taking place in the spring for the first time, to help support multiple non-profits in the same local markets where it serves guests.
From May 1-7 at participating Tim Hortons restaurants, guests can purchase a Smile Cookie for $1.50, with 100 percent of that purchase (excluding taxes) going to a designated non-profit in that local market. Last year, Tim Hortons donated more than $290,000 to local organizations in the US.
Each chocolate chip cookie is individually decorated by a team member, so no two are exactly alike. This year, on May 6, select locations will also host a cookie-decorating event where guests will have the opportunity to buy cookie-decorating kits complete with cookies, along with all the necessary toppings and tools needed to decorate them. Guests can choose to take them home, or enjoy them during the in-restaurant event, along with other family-friendly activities.
“At Tims we believe that putting a smile on our guests face is as important as serving our world-famous coffee and snacks,” says Tim Hortons USA president Ekrem Ozer. “Smile Cookie helps us extend that smile further into our neighborhoods by donating funds to wonderful charities in our local communities, selected by our restaurant owners.”
