Starting on September 17th there are even more smiling faces at Moose Jaw Tim Hortons. Customers can purchase a special smiling chocolate chip cookie for $1.00 plus taxes up until the 23rd of September and all the proceeds will be donated to the Moose Jaw Health Foundation.
“Tim Hortons is thrilled to help bring smiles to the patients of the Moose Jaw Health Foundation through our annual Smile Cookie fundraiser,” says Don and Kathy Howe, Tim Hortons Restaurant Owners. “The success of the program would not be possible without the support and generosity of our customers. On behalf of all the Moose Jaw Tim Hortons staff, I would like to thank all our guests for their continued support of this meaningful cause.”
Funds from the Tim Hortons Smile Cookie fundraiser will go towards the Moose Jaw Health Foundation’s Moose Jaw Cares Campaign to purchase state of the art medical equipment to help patients battling cancer at the Moose Jaw Union Hospital. Medical equipment that can be easily transferred to the new hospital once it completed. This year marks the 5th Anniversary of the partnership between Tim Hortons and the Moose Jaw Health Foundation.
“We are delighted that our local Tim Hortons has once again chosen the Moose Jaw Health Foundation to be the recipient of the proceeds from their Smile Cookie campaign,” says Dave Reidy, Volunteer Chairman of the Moose Jaw Health Foundation.” Each and every dollar raised from the Smile Cookie Campaign will stay in our community to help our friends and family that require cardiac and stroke care at our hospital.
