OAKVILLE, Ont. — On June 6, 100 per cent of the proceeds from hot-coffee sales at participating Tim Hortons restaurants across Canada will send more than 20,000 youth from low-income homes to a Tim Horton Camp.
“Camp Day is our biggest and most impactful annual fundraiser,” says Dave Newnham, president & executive director, Tim Horton Children’s Foundation (THCF). “We are incredibly grateful for the generosity of Tim Hortons’ restaurant owners and their guests on Camp Day. With each coffee sold on Camp Day, we’re one step closer to building a brighter future for our campers and making a positive impact in their communities.”
The THCF operates seven camps across Canada and the U.S. The camps are open year-round and deliver two signature programs designed based on decades of experience and current best practices in the youth development field. The goal of the summer program is to prepare campers, ages 12 to 16, for a successful life after high school.
“Camp Day is such an exciting day at Tim Hortons and our restaurant owners and their teams always go above and beyond to raise additional funds and to celebrate with our guests,” says Sami Siddiqui, president, Tim Hortons Canada. “Over the last 25 years, our communities have come together to raise more than $175 million, providing thousands of young Canadians with a life-changing camp experience.”
Buying a coffee on June 6 isn’t the only way to support Camp Day. Returning for the third year are limited-edition Camp Day bracelets, available for a donation of $2. Guests can join the Camp Day conversation by using #CampDay on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. Guests can also make a one-time, or monthly donation online at any time at timhortons.com.
