This year in Mississauga, local Tim Hortons restaurant owners and guests helped raise $67,956 to support Community Living Mississauga. Tim Hortons restaurant owners and millions of generous Canadians across the country combined broke a new Smile Cookie record by raising more than $12 million for local charities across the country.
Over the past six years, Tim Hortons has donated more than $514,000 from the Smile Cookie Campaigns to subsidize unfunded programs at Community Living Mississauga. These programs focus on supporting children, youth and teens who have an intellectual disability to participate in community-based recreational activities, summer camps and volunteer opportunities.
“We can’t express enough thanks to everyone at Tim Hortons as well as everyone who buys Smile Cookies,” said Keith Tansley, Executive Director at Community Living Mississauga. “In a year where almost all of our fundraising events have been cancelled due to COVID-19, our unfunded programs will be relying heavily on the funds raised by the Smile Cookie campaign.”
“Community Living Mississauga is very fortunate to have such a strong and long-standing relationship with so many of our local Tim Hortons owners,” continued Tansley. “This connection extends beyond just our fundraising events and also includes partnerships with our supported employment programs.”
“Each and every year, Tim Hortons restaurant owners continue to go above and beyond to help raise funds for our annual Smile Cookie campaign and it’s truly inspiring to be a part of something so great and impactful,” says Hope Bagozzi, Chief Marketing Officer for Tim Hortons.
