TIM HORTONS IN NIAGARA FALLS TO SUPPORT WOMEN’S PLACE AND BIG BROTHERS BIG SISTERS THIS SEPTEMBER
NIAGARA FALLS, ON, September 7, 2021 – This year, Tim Hortons restaurants across Canada will be hosting Smile Cookie week from September 13-19. This annual fundraiser, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary, features the iconic chocolate chunk cookies topped with pink and blue icing and raises millions of dollars for charitable organizations from coast-to-coast-to-coast. For 2021, Tim Hortons’ Niagara Falls locations will be sharing the proceeds of their campaign with Women’s Place and Big Brothers Big Sister of Niagara Falls.
Smile Cookie first began in 1996 in Hamilton, Ontario as a way to raise funds for the Hamilton Children’s Hospital. Since that time, the campaign has raised more than $60 million for charities, hospitals and community programs across the country, raising a record-breaking $11 million in 2020.
Cookies will be sold for $1 each plus tax. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to local charities. Members of our community can get their cookies by walking into their local Tim Hortons restaurant or pulling up to the drive-through window. Uber Eats and Skip the Dishes will also add them to their Tim Hortons menus for some locations during the campaign. A complete list of the locations that will be supporting these two agencies can be found on the Women’s Place or Big Brothers Big Sisters websites. This year, individuals and organizations can also bulk order cookies in advance by dropping off a pre-order form at their local restaurant. Forms can be found on the Women’s Place or Big Brothers Big Sisters websites.
