A handful of Tim Horton’s in Caledon raised $21,965 for a local charity that provides delivery services to seniors and people with illnesses or disabilities. 

Caledon Meals on Wheels (CMOW) established in 1984, is a local non-profit organization that deliveries services to the Town of Caledon and Orangeville areas. Their services include: meal delivery, group dining, lunch and card parties, exercise programs, volunteer visiting and tele chats, and security checks. 

Tim Hortons in Bolton, Mayfield/Airport Rd and Caledon Village raised over $21,000 for the charity through the Smile Cookie Campaign. 

“It was a very exciting campaign this year! There were times that is was difficult to keep up with the demand for SMILE cookies, and that is a reflection on both our customers and our charitable partner who was out daily at each of our locations sharing with customers how funds are used,” said Brad Stafford, the owner of the Bolton location Tim Hortons. 

CMOW is a big supporter of the care for health and wellness in the Caledon Community. Recently, CMOW has teamed up with the Caledon OPP on a program called Project Lifesaver, that helps families who have members who may wander due to cognitive impairment.

Caledon Meals on Wheels has made great success with the support of local Tim Horton’s. Last year Tim Horton’s raised over $20,000 for CMOW, and $13,577 the year before that. 

“We are grateful to have such an incredible relationship with our local Tim Horton’s franchises,” said Christine Sevigny, Executive Director of CMOW. “They understand the importance of the work we do in caring our community, and they stand with us in promoting health and wellness.”

Through the SMILE Campaign, Tim Horton’s has raised over $10 million for local charities, which is a 28% increase since last year.
