Wellspring Niagara received $13,019 from the Tim Hortons Smile Cookie Campaign

There were plenty of smiles in PELHAM during this year’s Tim Hortons Smile Cookie campaign. A cheque in the amount of $13,019 was presented to WELLSPRING NIAGARA, a regional cancer support centre that provides free supportive care services to men, women and children who are living with cancer and their families.

“We always look forward to participating in the annual Smile Cookie campaign,” says Stephanie McWilliams, Tim Hortons restaurant owner in Fonthill. “I want to thank our loyal guests and dedicated team members – this year’s campaign was a huge success because of their support. The money we raise makes a real difference in our community and we’re so happy to be part of it again this year.”

This year’s Smile Cookie campaign that ran from September 16-22, supported more than 550 local charities in Canada and raised a record breaking $10 million nationally.

“It’s amazing that the small act of buying a cookie can make such a big impact,” says Ann Mantini-Celima, Executive Director at WELLSPRING NIAGARA, “Thank you to Tim Hortons for the continued partnership. We are so happy that our local community came out in support of Niagara’s only cancer support centre and we can’t wait to make a difference with the dollars raised.”
