Tim Hortons Raises More than $12 Million on Camp Day


TORONTO — Tim Hortons has raised more than $12 million for its 31st annual Camp Day on July 13. The proceeds from all hot coffee and iced-coffee sales have been donated to Tim Hortons Foundation Camps to support youth in underserved communities.

To date, Camp Day has raised more than $237 million and has helped send more than 300,000 youth between the ages of 12 and 16 to a multi-year camp-based program at one of seven Tims Camps in Canada and the U.S.

“We’re so grateful for the support of our guests and from those who volunteered their time and efforts to have made this year’s Camp Day one to remember,” says Axel Schwan, president of Tim Hortons. “We can’t thank Canadians and Tims restaurant owners and their teams enough for such an incredible achievement – raising [more than] $12 million – and helping us support the important work of Tim Hortons Foundation Camps.”

“Every dollar donated helps to inspire and motivate youth through our multi-year, overnight camp experiences that are uniquely powerful in quickly building critical skills and empowering campers to better cope with challenging circumstances in the future,” says Graham Oliver, a Tims restaurant owner and president of the Tim Hortons Foundation Camps. “Many of the young people we support have never had the opportunity to experience camp or travel outside their city or town. Tims Camps can be a life-changing experience for our campers and we thank everyone for their continued support of Camp Day and Tim Hortons Foundation Camps.”
