Local Tim Hortons Smile Cookie Fundraiser to Support North Renfrew Family Services

Come out to purchase your Smile Cookies
September 13-19, 2021

From September 13-19 all across Canada, Tim Hortons stores are donating the full $1 from every Smile Cookie sold to select local charities.   Deep River restaurant owners, Shen & Ania Breckon, have once again selected North Renfrew Family Services (NRFS) as the local recipient.

NRFS is a non-profit agency providing free confidential counselling, basic needs assistance, advocacy, and support to individuals and families of all ages in North Renfrew since 1968.

  • Approximate 1 in 8 people in North Renfrew access services from our agency.
  • Our services are available to ALL residents of North Renfrew from Chalk River to Deux Riviėres.
  • The Main focus of our work is crisis intervention, counselling and support. Information and referral, advocacy, education and community representation are important areas of focus. 

Last year we raised over $5300 for NRFS from your Smile Cookie purchases. This year our goal is to raise $7000!  We need your ongoing support to make this campaign a success.

Come out to purchase your Smile Cookies September 13-19.  

Pre-ordering and Bulk sales are great ways to share your Smiles with teammates, colleagues, friends and family.
Download a Smile Cookie pre-order form or Tim Hortons’ Then email the filled out form to DeepRiverSmileCookies@gmail.com.

(Pre-ordering will  allow us to coordinate our volunteers and plan for cookie making). Please note that Tim Hortons requires 48 hours notice to ensure your Pre-order is ready.  Completed pre-order forms can also be dropped off at the local restaurant as soon as possible. 

We will hold a campaign photo opportunity with Tim Hortons and NRFS for the business, individual or group with the largest number of cookies pre-ordered!
