Lions Club brings smiles to Pleasant Meadow residents and staff

Members delivered Tim Hortons Smile Cookies to the home Sept. 14

Pleasant Meadow Manor residents and staff members were on the receiving end of a random act of kindness recently when members of the local chapter of the Lions Club dropped off some special cookies.

On Sept. 14, members of the Norwood Lions Club showed up with six boxes of Smile Cookies from Tim Hortons. Smile Cookies are chocolate chunk cookies adorned with smiley faces. They are the centrepiece of Tim Hortons’ annual Smile Cookie campaign.

Every year since 1996, Tim Hortons has run the Smile Cookie campaign. During the campaign, 100 per cent of the proceeds from the sale of Smile Cookies are donated to charities in communities across Canada.

Everyone at Pleasant Meadow Manor was surprised by the Smile Cookies, which were served to residents and staff members in the afternoon, says Kim Williams, Pleasant Meadow Manor’s life enrichment co-ordinator.

The kind gesture from the Lions Club is an example of a small thing that can make a big difference, Kim says.

“These are the types of surprises that everyone enjoys and puts smiles on everyone’s faces,” she tells The OMNIway.
