Today is Camp Day at Tim Hortons

Today is a special day for Tim Hortons Store Owners, staff and customers.

It’s Camp Day! Camp Day is the one day a year when Tim Hortons Store Owners across Canada and the United States donate every penny from coffee sales to the Tim Horton Children’s Foundation. In 2008, Camp Day raised more than $9 million CDN ($8.8 million U.S.).

What One Cup of Coffee Can Do

Every time a customer buys a coffee at Tim Hortons on Camp Day they will help send close to 14,000 kids – who could otherwise not afford it – on the camping adventure of a lifetime.

All children who attend one of the Foundation’s six camps are selected from within the communities where Tim Hortons stores are located.

Tim Hortons Store 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.  In 2008 children from Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Fort St. John had the opportunity to attend one of the camps.

Get out there today and buy a coffee and send a kid to camp.
