Guaranteed to be the biggest fundraiser of the year at the Burlington Food Bank. Can’t thank Tim Horton’s enough, was the way one of the volunteers put it.

The Tim Horton’s 2020 Smile Cookie Campaign was a HUGE success this year! Burlington Tim Horton’s Restaurant Owners collectively raised $69,249 for the Burlington Food Bank in just one week.

The store owners gathered together at Cameron Robins’ store on Plains Rd to present the cheque.

The 70k cookie

The Smile Cookie sale raised $69,249 for the Food Bank. Every penny of each cookie sale went to the Food Bank.

Cameron, thanked everyone adding that this was such a wonderful way to give back.

Everyone gets a cookie that the staff have decorated with the entire proceeds going directly to the food bank to feed families in our Burlington community.

This donation comes at an excellent time; we are seeing the usage of the Food Bank increasing. With these funds they are able to purchase healthy nutritious food and produce to help balance their client’s needs.

Tim Horton’s staff have put a Smile on the faces of thousands of people in Burlington.
