This past Wednesday, June 4, all purchases of
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. .
