Smile cookie helps shelter

The Kelowna Women's Shelter will be getting a little help this holiday season thanks to Tim Horton and its Smile Cookie campaign.

From November 13-19, Tim Hortons restaurants in West Kelowna raised $5,547.93, which will directly help the women's shelter.

The campaign was created this year to give guests the opportunity to give back during the holiday season and help make a difference in the community.

With every Holiday Smile Cookie sold, 100% of the profits raised go to local charities, community groups and young people in neighborhoods across Canada. Funds donated to KWS will be used to fund its programs and services.

“The Kelowna Women’s Shelter is grateful for this generous donation from Tim Hortons restaurants in West Kelowna, BC. Through this donation, KWS will be able to better serve women and children in our communities through our programs and services,” said Michelle Dickie, interim executive director of the Kelowna Women’s Shelter.

The Kelowna Women's Shelter hosted the check presentation last week with Tim Horton's owners Angelo and Dawn Fiacco, who operate the coffee shop located at 3470 Carrington Rd. West Kelowna.

“We are honored to have a collective impact on our small community and beyond by supporting the West Kelowna Women’s Shelter and KWS now and in the future,” the Fiaccos said in a joint statement.
