“This is such a great campaign for me. Anytime you can donate is good, plus, we are having fun delivering the cookies to all the schools. You feel good dropping the cookies off, the kids feel good getting them, and staff too.”  

Starting on Monday, April 29, when you buy a Smile Cookie at any local Tim Horton’s in Grande Prairie for $1.50, 100% of the proceeds go to support the Grande Prairie Regional Hospital Foundation.   

The first Smile Cookie campaign was launched in 1996, originally raising funds for Hamilton Children’s Hospital. 

The Tim Horton’s 2023 Smile Cookie campaign raised a record of more than $19.7 Million across Canada.

Grande Prairie raised just over $31,000 during last year's Christmas Smile Cookie campaign.
