Tim Hortons creates 'Alberta Rose' doughnut to raise cash for flood relief

OAKVILLE, Ont. – Tim Hortons patrons wanting to help with flood relief might want to consider ordering an Alberta Rose with their coffee in the next little while.

The chain restaurant says it has created a special doughnut by that name that will be sold for $1 at its Alberta outlets for a limited time.

Tim Hortons says all the money raised will be donated to Red Cross flood relief efforts in southern Alberta.

The rose-shaped disaster doughnut is vanilla dipped, has a yellow Venetian cream centre and is topped with pink, red and white strawberry bark.

It’s available beginning Friday.

The wild rose is Alberta’s provincial flower.
