Smiles All Around: Tim Hortons’ Smile Cookie Campaign A Success

May 23, 2024

The Smile Cookie campaign raised $15,608 this year for Innisfil ideaLAB & Library & Essa Public Library. Thank you to local Tim Hortons restaurant owners and many guests who bought Smile Cookies in support of our local libraries.

Owner of the Tim Hortons David Blackmore, located in Cookstown and Thornton along with the Seth Family, owners of the Tim Hortons located at the Tanger Outlets, supported the local communities by distributing the funds equally to both libraries.

“We are absolutely thrilled to partake in the Smile Cookie fundraising event each year. The Thornton Community benefits from upgrades to our branch to make the space a safe and inviting destination for all ages”, said Laura Wark, Essa Public Library, CEO

“We would like to send a big thank you to the owners and staff of our local Tim Hortons locations, who decorated thousands of Smile Cookies, and generously promoted the Smile Cookie campaign in support of our local libraries,” said CEO Erin Scuccimarri of Innisfil ideaLAB & Library.

All of the proceeds will go directly to programs, upgrades, and services at the Innisfil ideaLAB & Library and the Essa Public Library.
