VERNON - Smile Cookies are back for a limited time to help raise funds for Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation. 

The Tim Hortons chocolate chunk treats will be available from September 11th to 20th at locations in Vernon and Armstrong.

For just a dollar, you can get a smile and give a smile.

All proceeds from the sale of Smile Cookies will help furnish and equip the 6th and 7th floors of Polson Tower at VJH.

Last year, Tim Hortons raised more than $25,000 through cookie sales and a matching donation from owners Dan and Jamie Currie.

“We are very grateful to receive the ongoing generous support of Tim Hortons,” said Sue Beaudry, Director of Development for VJH Foundation. “Smile Cookies campaign is really a combined effort because it’s our customers who buy the cookies and help us to raise the money to support such a worthy local cause.”

Tim Hortons has been supporting local communities through the “Smile Cookie” program since 1996.

The “Smile Cookie” program originally began in Ontario in 1996 and has since expanded across Canada helping a variety of children’s charities, hospitals and community programs.
