During the week of September 14th– September 20th, delicious Smile Cookies will be sold across the country at participating Tim Hortons with the full $1 of each Smile Cookie being donated to charity. All Cowichan Valley Tim Hortons locations will be participating in the fundraising initiative to support three local non-profit organizations; Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Cowichan Valley, Clements Centre Society, and Nourish Cowichan.
Tim Hortons is a proud community supporter and is looking to ramp up this year’s cookie sales to support more children and youth in the Cowichan Valley. Smile cookies can be found at all Tim Hortons locations both in-store and drive thru. Pre-sale orders are available in advance by contacting your nearest Tim Hortons restaurant or one of the three charities; Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Cowichan Valley, Clements Centre, or Nourish Cowichan.
Make someone’s day and buy a cookie! When you eat a delicious hand-decorated cookie you are supporting initiatives that support local children and youth to live healthier lives and provides opportunities to help them reach their full potential. Buy a smile… give a smile. All funds raised stays in the Cowichan Valley.
Next week is the opportunity for the Cowichan Valley to visit their nearest Tim Hortons restaurant and purchase a cookie to support local non-profit organizations. With over 15,425 cookies sold last year, the goal is to increase this number to 20,000 cookies sold.
