Humane Society of Kawartha Lakes supported by Tim Horton’s Smile campaign

By Lindsay Advocate

The annual Tim Hortons Smile Cookie charitable campaign, which took place from May 1 to May 7, successfully raised $9,105.54 in support of the Humane Society of Kawartha Lakes (HSKL).

During the campaign, Tim Hortons guests at the Lindsay, Ontario location on 93 Lindsay St S. had the opportunity to purchase hand-decorated Smile Cookies or pins. Every dollar from the sale of each cookie went towards HSKL, an organization dedicated to helping sick, injured, and homeless animals.

Judi Cannon, the executive director of the Humane Society of Kawartha Lakes, expressed gratitude for the community’s support, stating, “Each and every Smile Cookie sold helps to support sick, injured, and homeless animals in our care. We were so thrilled to be a part of this fun event, our volunteers and staff enjoyed decorating the cookies, and desperate funds were raised to help the animals.”

Shelby Hunter, from the local Tim Hortons, shared her excitement about being involved in the Smile Cookie campaign, remarking, “This year’s Smile Cookie campaign was so much fun to be a part of, and we are very excited that we could give back to the community. Smile Cookie has meant so much to our team over the years.”

The Smile Cookie campaign, which originated in 1996, initially raised funds for the Hamilton Children’s Hospital. Since then, the annual campaign has generated over $111 million for various charities and organizations, selected each year by Tim Hortons restaurant owners.

On a national scale, Tim Hortons restaurant owners support more than 600 local charities and community groups through the Smile Cookie campaign.
