TORONTO — Tim Hortons annual Camp Day fundraising campaign is returning on July 13. Proceeds from all hot-coffee and iced-coffee sales will be donated to Tim Hortons Foundation Camps to support sending youth from under-served communities to camp.
Over its 30-year history, Camp Day has raised more than $225 million to support more than 300,000 youth between the ages of 12 and 16.
“Many of the young people we support have never had the opportunity to experience camp or travel outside their city or town. Our multi-day, overnight camp experiences are uniquely powerful in quickly building critical skills in youth, and strengthening social ties and community connections that can help youth better cope with challenging circumstances,” says Graham Oliver, a Tim Hortons restaurant owner and president of Tim Hortons Foundation Camps. “We challenge young people. We help them see their best self. And we work with them as they carve a path towards the future they want.”
“The profound impact Camp Day has had in raising over $225 million in its history and supporting over 300,000 youth is a testament to the dedication and generosity of Tims restaurant owners and team members and the incredible support from Tims guests year after year,” says Axel Schwan, president of Tim Hortons.
Customers have already started to support Tim Hortons Foundation Camps by purchasing a Camp Day bracelet for $2 or a pair of red and white camp-themed socks for $5.
