Tim Hortons Camp Day, a day the restaurant chain in the U.S. and Canada donates all of its proceeds from coffee sales to sending kids to summer camp, is scheduled for Wednesday, June 4.
Thanks to the generous support of Tim Hortons Restaurant Owners and their loyal guests, Camp Day 2013 raised $11.8 million for the Tim Horton Children’s Foundation.
“The outpouring of support that we receive from loyal Tim Hortons customers is what makes Camp Day an overwhelming success each year,” said Dave Newnham Vice President, Tim Horton Children’s Foundation, in a news release. “Supporting Camp Day gives economically disadvantaged kids the opportunity to experience a camping adventure that will inspire them for years to come.”
All children who attend one of the Foundation’s six camps in Canada and the U.S. are selected from within the communities where Tim Hortons Restaurants are located. Tim Hortons Restaurant Owners work closely with local youth organizations and schools to select children, between the ages of nine and 12, to attend a 10-day summer camp session or seven day winter camp session.
