Lunch & Learn – Health & Wellness Event

Thank you to Kinetic Elements Dance and Tammy Snow-Johnston Fitness for hosting our first in-person event of the fall! Urban Cravings provided a delicious lunch for all our attendees. We ate, moved, stretched, sweated a bit, groaned a bit, and made some awesome connections!

(We want to hear from you! Did you  know we have a feedback station on our website? – we’d love to hear what you think, what you like, and what we can do to improve.)

Buy a Smile Cookie to Support Rose Cottage September 19-25

The Tim Hortons Smile Cookie campaign is back from September 19-25!

Rose Cottage Visiting Volunteers Community Hospice is grateful to be the chosen charity for the Beamsville and Vineland restaurant locations.  100% of proceeds from these locations will be donated to Rose Cottage, who will use the funds to enhance programs, and improve accessibility at their office location on Hixon Street in Beamsville.

Every year, Tim Hortons’ guests and restaurant owners rally together behind the weeklong Smile Cookie campaign. For this one week, the iconic chocolate chunk cookies, topped with pink and blue icing drawing out a smile, will be available at every Tim Hortons restaurant across the country.

Since 1985, Rose Cottage has served families in the West Niagara community facing a life limiting or progressive illness. Their volunteers provide client and caregiver support, bereavement services, a care package delivery and wellness check program, and a legacy program that allows clients to preserve their life story.

Tim Hortons has been raising funds for local charities for 26 years. Last year, Tim Hortons restaurants raised a record breaking $12.2 million for over 600 local charities and community groups – an incredible accomplishment contributing to the Smile Cookie legacy of over $75 million raised since the program’s inception.

Rose Cottage volunteers and staff will be working hard to transform chocolate chunk cookies into Smile Cookies. Pre-orders for boxes of 12 cookies can be arranged for pickup and payment at a restaurant location during the Smile Cookie campaign. Contact the Rose Cottage office directly at 289-566-9688 or by email at info.rcvv@gmail.com .

Every Smile Cookie is as unique as the people, charities, and communities they help.
