Smile Cookies will support Quesnel and District Hospice Palliative Care Association

The fundraising campaign runs until Sept. 20 at both Quesnel Tim Hortons locations

The Quesnel and District Hospice and Palliative Care Association (QDHPCA) has once again been chosen as the beneficiary of the local Tim Hortons Smile Cookie fundraising campaign.

From Sept. 14-20, both Tim Hortons locations in Quesnel will be selling Smile Cookies for $1, plus tax, to support the QDHPCA.

Last year, more than 5,400 cookies were sold at both Quesnel locations, raising more than $5,400, and the QDHPCA is hoping to beat that amount in 2020.

The first Smile Cookie was sold in 1996 to help raise money for the Hamilton Children’s Hospital in Ontario, and now, the Smile Cookie campaign supports more than 500 local charities and organizations in communities across Canada, according to Tim Hortons.
