This past Wednesday, June 4, all purchases of Tim Hortons coffee helped give thousands of kids in communities across Canada and the U.S. the camping adventure of a lifetime. Over 3,000 Tim Hortons stores in North America donated their entire coffee sales and funds raised through Camp Day events and activities to the Tim Horton Children's Foundation--raising $8.8 million. This amount exceeds last year's total of $7.8 million .
"Thank you to all of the Tim Hortons store owners and their dedicated staff, media, special guests, and above all the customers for buying a cup of coffee and participating in the many Camp Day activities," says Bill Moir, President, Tim Horton Children's Foundation. "We are truly amazed at the outpouring of generosity from Tim Hortons customers and each year this event continues to surpass everyone's expectations. On behalf of the Foundation and all the kids who will attend a Tim Horton Children's Foundation camp this year, thank you very much."
Over 13,000  children will attend one of the six foundation camps this year, thanks in large part to the funds raised on Camp Day. Each camp offers a wide range of first-class programs and activities that encourage campers to embrace challenges. The experience is designed to build self-confidence, self-esteem and leadership skills and provide campers with a positive view of their true potential.
The Tim Horton Children's Foundation is a nonprofit charitable organization founded in 1974. .
