Smile Cookie Campaign is back at Tims

Smile Cookies are back, and the owners of the Golden Tim Hortonshave once again decided to donate the proceeds to the ECDC.

Smile Cookies are back, and the owners of the Golden Tim Hortons, Brent and Julie Bolin, have once again decided to donate the proceeds to the Early Childhood Development Coalition.

With each cookie sold, $1 will be donated to ECDC to support the group’s Mother Goose program.

“We’re really thrilled that they’ve chosen us, they didn’t have to. They can choose whoever they want,” said Joanne McCullough, director of the ECDC.

Last year Golden Tim Hortons sold 2,400 cookies, which was able to fund 20 weeks of the Mother Goose program at the Golden Library, plus six weeks in Field, and six weeks in Parson.

Mother Goose had to be cut a few years ago, and the ECDC was thrilled to be able to bring it back.

“It’s singing and rhymes, and those are critical pre-literacy tools. It’s also really good  community building for those families. Last year it was really well attended,” said McCullough.

The Smile Cookies are on sale now, until Sunday Sept. 23.
