The bakers of all three Tim Hortons’ locations in the Comox Valley were spectacular this year in keeping up with the demand for Smile Cookies.
The annual Smile Cookie Campaign has raised a record $6,414 for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Comox Valley.
A gigantic thank you to the bakers that kept the cookies coming, an enormous thank you to the management and staff of Tim Hortons and huge thank you to the Comox Valley residents that added cookie after cookie to their orders when they walked through the doors or pulled up to the drive-thru.
Robin Smart, director, Boys and Girls Clubs, is overwhelmed.
“The generosity of the community combined with the amazing support from Tim Hortons’ staff is so immensely appreciated. The Boys and Girls Clubs have been known as the best kept secret – not any more.
“Tim Hortons gave our staff the opportunity to come into their three locations, sell cookies and educate everyone on what we do and who we serve. These funds will help to support children and families in our community and that makes it all worthwhile.
“We are already looking forward to next year with the addition of a fourth Tim Hortons at the corner of Ryan and Lerwick Roads that will be a double drive-thru!”
