Local Tim Hortons restaurants and guests raised over $226,892 in Barrie and Stroud through the Smile Cookies campaign.
Money raised from the cookie sales will be split between two charities: Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre’s birthing unit and Hospice Simcoe.
"We're so proud and humbled that Tims guests have once again shown incredible support for our Smile Cookie campaign and important charities and community groups where they live by helping us raise a record-breaking $19.7 million," says Axel Schwan, president of Tim Hortons.
"To achieve such an amazing result means baking and hand-decorating millions upon millions of Smile Cookies over the course of just a week. My heartfelt thanks go out to everyone who made this happen, including all of our passionate restaurant owners, team members and volunteers who helped us dot eyes and create smiles.”
In total, the sales of Smile Cookies at Tim Hortons restaurants have raised a "record-breaking" $19.7 million across Canada, RVH says.
