They’re sweet, they’re smiley, and they’re for a good cause!
That’s right, it’s Smile Cookie Week in Greater Victoria from September 19th to 25th.
The chocolate chip cookie with an icing smile has become Tim Horton’s most iconic treat over the past nine years.
100% of the proceeds of smile cookies go towards a local charity that can do so much good with the money raised by Tim’s.
Greater Victoria’s 23 Tim Hortons Restaurants are raising money for the Children’s Health Foundation of Vancouver Island.
Specifically, the funds raised by the smile cookies will support Jeneece Place, which has become the Foundation’s home away from home at Victoria General Hospital.

“We are incredibly grateful to the Tim Hortons franchisees across Greater Victoria for their continued support”, said Veronica Carroll, Children’s Health Foundation CEO.
Tim Hortons Smile Cookie Week raised a total of close to $250,000 over the past eight years.
“Those funds support access to health care for Island kids and help us keep families together and close by when children are in the hospital.”
The smile cookies will be available in-store at the 23 locations in Greater Victoria, and you can order through the mobile app for delivery or you can pre-order them online for pickup.
