This past Wednesday, June 2, 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.

More than 3,500 Tim Hortons Restaurant Owners across North America donated their entire coffee sales and funds raised through Camp Day events and activities to the Tim Horton Children’s Foundation – raising $9.3 million. This money will give even more children the opportunity to experience a camping adventure this year.

“Thank you to all of the Tim Hortons Restaurant 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 of the 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.”

More than 14,000 deserving children will attend one of the six Foundation camps this year, due 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 to provide campers with a positive view of their true potential.
