Tim Hortons Acknowledges Essential Workers with its Hero Cups


TORONTO — Tim Hortons is calling on Canadians to nominate the hard-working essential workers and other frontline heroes they know for a chance to be featured on limited-edition Tim Hortons Hero Cups that will be available across the country.

Guests can nominate adults who have been on the frontlines during the pandemic, including but not limited to, healthcare workers, first responders, truck drivers, retail staff, government workers, public-transit staff and anyone else who has worked to keep the country running in these difficult times. 

The Tim Hortons Hero Cup designs feature large “Thank You” and “Merci” messages in place of the company’s logo and will have the names and professions of 100 heroes wrapping around the cup.  

One of those already selected to be featured on a Tim Hortons Hero Cup is Debra Conway-Chung, a registered nurse manager of Access and Flow at St. Joseph’s Health Centre in Toronto. During the pandemic, she’s written inspirational messages on her masks to inspire patients and co-workers during challenging moments.

To nominate someone for their chance to be featured on a Tim Hortons Hero Cup, visit herocups.timhortons.ca. Nominees will be contacted and asked to provide their consent before being considered for the inclusion. Nominations will be open until June 24. All selected heroes will also be featured on timhortons.ca.

“Frontline workers have been the backbone of our communities during these extremely difficult times. Like all Canadians, we want to ensure we continue to show our gratitude and appreciation by shining a spotlight on them,” says Hope Bagozzi, Chief Marketing Officer of Tim Hortons.
