One of Swift Current's more unique and joyful fundraisers has returned.

Tim Hortons Smile Cookie program is back for its 14th installment locally hoping to add to the $137,000 raised for Kidsport Swift Current over the years.

"It's such a huge event that Tim Hortons has put on and over the years it's really caught on," said Kevin Patenaude, a board member for Kidsport Swift Current. "It's our biggest fundraiser."

Last year the three Tim Hortons combined to sell a record high 16,265 cookies in support of the non-profit organization.

"We can't say enough about all the folks at the local Tim Hortons for choosing Kidsport," he said. "It's such a hard thing to go to the community to raise money. By them using Kidsport, it makes our jobs a lot easier, whereas our focus is ensuring that all kids can play."

Kidsport Swift Current helped 54 individuals with sport-funding in 2021 which saw them hand out around $16,800.
