SCUGOG: What’s better than a cookie that tastes good? A cookie that does good! Tim Hortons Smile Cookie Campaign is back supporting charities in communities across the country, including the residential hospices currently being built in Clarington, Whitby and Port Perry; three of 550 Canadian charities, hospitals and community programs supported through the annual campaign. This year, Tim Hortons restaurants in Durham Region are supporting Oak Ridges Hospice, as well as, Durham Region Hospice Clarington and Durham Region Hospice in Whitby. For one week, from September 14th to 20th, restaurant owners donate the full $1 from every freshly baked chocolate chunk Smile Cookie purchased, to support charities in their community. Guests can complete a form to place pre-orders for Smile Cookies through their restaurants in Durham Region. Oak Ridges Hospice and Durham Region Hospice are thrilled to be partnering with Tim Hortons and local restaurant owners in Durham Region for the 2020 Smile Cookie Campaign. Funds raised will support the construction of these three hospices and help bring compassionate end-of-life-care to Durham Region. “We’re excited to be able to support local charities, hospitals and community programs again this year. Our guests, restaurant owners and their team members can feel incredibly proud, knowing that the money raised during the campaign directly supports local Tim Hortons communities.” said Mike Hancock, Chief Operating Officer, for Tim Hortons. Oak Ridges Hospice and Durham Region Hospice are community-based charitable organizations committed to providing a, free of charge, tranquil, home-like setting, where a dedicated team of specially trained medical, nursing, support staff and volunteers provide compassionate care and comfort to our residents and their loved ones at the end-of-life. They will form a network of future hospices in Durham Region that will be located in Port Perry (Oak Ridges Hospice), Whitby and Clarington (Durham Region Hospice).
