Buying a cookie at Tim Horton’s this week will help a local organization.

For the third year, the proceeds from the Smile Cookie campaign in Haliburton and Minden are going to the Volunteer Dental Outreach.

Last year, the campaign raised nearly $4,000 for VDO.

The organization provides free dental care to people who can’t afford it.

VDO says they can provide $5 in free dental care for every dollar raised.

It started yesterday and runs until Sunday.
