Smile Cookie campaign supporting YMCA in Kelowna

Buy a cookie, feed a kid

The annual Tim Hortons Smile Cookie campaign is back for its 25th year in support of 550 charities, hospitals and community programs across Canada.

Until Sept. 19, the full $1 from every Smile Cookie sold in Kelowna and West Kelowna stores will go to YMCA Okanagan, helping to provide nutritious snacks for kids through the Healthy Snacks program.

The donation ensures more than 540 children taking part in Y preschool or out-of-school care programs receive a healthy, delicious snack every day.

The Smile Cookie campaign started up in 1996, and was incorporated into Kelowna/West Kelowna stores in 2013. In 2019, a record $9.8 million was raised through the campaign.

Guests can place pre-orders for the freshly baked chocolate chunk Smile Cookie through their local restaurant.
