The 26th Annual Smile Cookie Campaign put on by Tim Hortons restaurants across Canada from September 19 – 25th was another huge success raising funds for local charities. 100% of the proceeds from every Smile Cookie goes towards community groups and this year, Warman and Martensville Tim Horton’s donated their proceeds to Kidsport.
This not-for-profit organization is designed to assist youth ages 5 to 18 of families facing financial obstacles to participate in sport programs. 100% of the funds raised stay in the Saskatchewan community.
“It was a nice surprise for us to be able to get this donation,” said Angie Reddekopp, Martensville Kidsport Representative.
Last year $12.2 million was raised and distributed to over 600 local charities and community groups with a total of over $75 million raised since the program’s inception.
