On December 14, Tim Hortons Owner Greg Whitney donated $2016, the proceeds from the Smile Cookie campaign, to Vermilion KidSport.
KidSport is a non-profit organization which helps support children and families who do not have the financial means to participate in sports. The organization helps pay registration fees for a variety of different sporting activities along with occasionally helping to supply equipment when needed. Vermilion KidSport has helped approximately 35 local children this past year.
"We have been doing the Smile Cookie Campaign for about six years now here in Vermilion with the donation going mainly to KidSport. I would like to thank the community for their support this and in previous years, " said Whitney. It's a great program, and we plan to continue with KidSport in the future.
