Smile Cookie Campaign raises a record amount of (cookie) dough for WLMH

Posted on Monday, November 4th, 2019 |

There were plenty of smiles in Grimsby, Lincoln and West Lincoln during this year’s Tim Hortons Smile Cookie campaign. The simple act of buying a chocolate chunk cookie lovingly decorated with blue eyes and a cheerful pink smile raised $39,259.26 for the West Lincoln Memorial Hospital Foundation as part of a record breaking national campaign.

“We always look forward to participating in the annual Smile Cookie campaign,” says Larry Thornley, Grimsby Tim Hortons restaurant owner. “I want to thank our loyal guests and dedicated team members – this year’s campaign was a huge success because of their support. The money we raise makes a real difference in our community and we’re so happy to be part of it again this year.”

This year’s Smile Cookie campaign that ran from September 16-22, supported more than 550 local charities in Canada and raised a record breaking $10 million nationally.

“It’s amazing that the small act of buying a cookie can make such a big impact,” says Pamela Ellens, Executive Director, WLMH Foundation.   “Thank you to Tim Hortons for the continued partnership. We are so happy that our local community came out in support WLMH Foundation and we can’t wait to make a difference with the dollars raised.”
