From September 14 to September 20, the full $1 from every Smile Cookie sold in Carleton Place will support Carleton Place & District Memorial Hospital Foundation
Last year, Tim Hortons® restaurant owners and guests across the country raised a record $9.8 million to support local charities through their annual Smile Cookie campaign. Back again for its 24th year, Tim Hortons Smile Cookie week will support charities in communities across the country, including the Carleton Place & District Memorial Hospital Foundation in Carleton Place – one of 550 Canadian charities, hospitals and community programs supported through the annual campaign.
For one week, from September 14 – 20, restaurant owners will donate the full $1 from every freshly baked chocolate chunk Smile Cookie purchased to support charities in their community. Guests can complete a form to place pre-orders for Smile Cookies through their restaurant in Carleton Place.
This year, Tim Hortons restaurants in Carleton Place are supporting Carleton Place & District Memorial Hospital (CPDMH) Foundation. The Foundation is dedicated to raising funds to strengthen the Hospital’s ability to provide the best health care possible to the residents of Carleton Place and surrounding communities.
“Tim Hortons’ 2020 Smile Cookie Campaign starts today and the Foundation is thrilled to be the charity of choice for the Tim Hortons Carleton Place locations. Last year, Tim Hortons raised an astounding $12,726.30 for the purchase of patient care equipment at CPDMH. This year, the need is greater than ever as we meet the challenges brought on by COVID-19. Many thanks to Lisa Peters, Scot Moore and the Tim Hortons team for their unwavering support of the Foundation, our hospital and the community. We are encouraging our supporters to say “THANK YOU!” or “GREAT JOB!” by purchasing a dozen Smile Cookies and dropping them off to an outstanding business or organization. Encourage them to SMILE IT FORWARD by gifting another group or person with more SMILES. Share your SMILES by taking a photo and posting to social media with #Smiles4CPDMHF.”
Robyn Arseneau, Executive Director, CPDMH Foundation
“Communities coming together during these difficult times is more important than ever. We and our restaurant team members are excited to continue working with our local charity partners, Carleton Place & District Memorial Hospital Foundation, to raise as much as possible to support their local programs. We encourage all of our guests throughout our annual Smile Cookie week to support their local charities by purchasing a freshly baked Smile Cookie at Tim Hortons for just $1.”
Lisa Peters and Scot Moore, Tim Hortons Restaurant Owner, Carleton Place
“Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve been treating local food banks, hospitals and charities to our coffee trucks and baked goods as they support their communities day in and day out. We’re continuing to support these organizations as we kick off our annual Smile Cookie week, one of our largest restaurant owner-led initiatives, that continues to support local charities who need it most. We’re so excited Smile Cookie is back for its 24th year.”
Hope Bagozzi, Chief Marketing Officer, Tim Hortons
