All four Tim Hortons locations in Niagara-on-the-Lake are giving this year’s Smile Cookie proceeds to Red Roof Retreat.
The fundraiser will donate $1 for each Smile Cookie sold at the franchise locations on Mississagua Street, Niagara Stone Road, the Gateway Travel Centre on York Road and the Outlet Collections of Niagara on Taylor Road.
The campaign began Monday, and will run until this Sunday, Sept. 20.
Last year, with just two locations participating, more than $8,000 was raised for Red Roof.
Claire Ellsworth, special events coordinator with Red Roof Retreat, says the organization is grateful to have all four NOTL locations onboard, especially this year, with so many fundraising events cancelled.
The money will help with operations of Red Roof, which runs respite care and day programs for children and young adults at two locations in Niagara-
on-the-Lake and one in St. Catharines.
Each year, charities have to apply to be recipients of the Smile Cookie campaign, and this is the second time Red Roof has been chosen.
