(Prescott) – Tim Hortons here will bring smiles to area children throughout the year.

The Prescott location recently donated $3,100 to the Upper Canada District School Board Champions for Kids Foundation (C4K), funds generated through the 2015 Smile Cookie campaign. The money will be used by C4K to help local students play sports, enjoy arts activities, and even cover minor medical expenses such as the purchase of eyeglasses.

“We are very excited to be partnering with Tim Hortons in Prescott and the Lockett family (coffee shop owners),” said Ray Westendorp, C4K 1st vice-president. “This is the second year in a row the Locketts have donated proceeds from the Smile Cookie campaign to Champions. We are very pleased with how much the campaign has raised. That support will go right back into our communities.”

The local effort was part of a nationwide campaign by Tim Hortons that encouraged patrons to pay $1 for a chocolate chunk “Smile Cookie,” with 100 per cent of the proceeds donated to local shops to distribute to children’s charities, hospitals and community programs.
