Tim Hortons’ Week-long Smile Cookie Campaign Is Back Next Week, with 100% of Profits Donated to Local Charities and Community Groups

  • April 29 through May 5, every purchase of a Smile Cookie will help give back to local communities. 100 percent of the profits ($1.50 per cookie) will be donated to over 25 charities and community groups across the U.S., selected by local Tims restaurant owners.

  • Last year, Tim Hortons guests in the United States helped raise more than $400,000 through the annual Smile Cookie campaign!

NEW YORK, April 24, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — The annual Smile Cookie campaign is back at Tim Hortons restaurants in the United States starting Monday, April 29, through Sunday, May 5. When buying a Smile Cookie — a baked-daily Tim Hortons Chocolate Chunk Cookie hand-decorated with a blue and pink icing smile — guests help give back to their local community. 100 percent of profits ($1.50 per cookie) are donated to over 25 charities and community groups selected by local Tims restaurant owners. 

Across the U.S., donation recipients include local children-focused organizations, hospitals and community care organizations.

“Knowing that Tim Hortons supports [our local children’s hospital and other charities] means the world to us. It means we have access to the technology and services that we need. And knowing that Smile Cookie can help other people like us is a fantastic feeling,” said Michelle McKinney, parent.

The first Smile Cookie campaign launched in 1996 in Canada, originally raising funds for Hamilton Children’s Hospital. Since then, the annual charitable campaign has raised a total of more than $80 million across Canada and the United States for charities and organizations.
