Smiles creating smiles

Tim Hortons Smile Cookie Campaign cheque presentation

It was smiles all around for this year’s Tim Hortons Smile Cookie Campaign. This year, Tim Hortons restaurants raised a record breaking $15 MILLION for more than 625 charities across Canada. Locally, the Markdale Tim Hortons location raised $7,800 for equipment in the new Markdale Hospital!

“The goal was to raise enough funds for an adult stretcher” stated Yvonne and Paul MacGillivray, owners of the Markdale location. “By the end of Smile Cookie week, we realized enough funds were raised to buy TWO stretchers!” said the MacGillivray’s proudly. Also, the Markdale location over doubled their cookie sales from last year, ranking this location 2nd in year over year growth.

Harvey Fraser, Chair of the Foundation and the Together in Care campaign expressed extreme gratitude for this opportunity. “This is a collective effort from Tim Hortons, the MacGillivray’s and our community. Thank you to everyone for making this year’s Smile Cookie Campaign such a success!”


At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful and factual, up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.

South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.

Please consider supporting South Grey News with a donation in lieu of a subscription fee and let us know that our efforts are appreciated. Thank you.
