Changing lives with Tim Hortons

by Staff Writer / Detroit Red Wings
DETROIT – Wednesday, June 1 is Tim Hortons Camp Day!

Camp Day is the one day each year when every penny from coffee sales at Tim Hortons Restaurants across Canada and the United States will be donated to the Tim Horton Children’s Foundation.

On Camp Day, when guests buy a coffee and participate in the various fundraising activities, they will help send more than 14,000 kids on the camping adventure of a lifetime. Campers aged 9-12 years attend a 10 day summer camp session, or a seven day winter camp session at one of the Foundation’s six camps. All children who attend camp are selected by Tim Hortons Restaurant Owners who work closely with local youth organizations and schools to identify kids who would most benefit from an experience at camp.

“The support that we receive from customers every year is overwhelming,” says Bill Moir, president of Tim Horton Children’s Foundation. “Every cup of coffee purchased on Camp Day helps to send even more deserving kids on a camping experience that will inspire them for years to come.”

During their stay at camp, kids participate in a wide range of first-class programs and activities designed to build self-confidence, self esteem and leadership skills. The Foundation is committed to providing an enriched and memorable experience for campers, giving them confidence in their abilities, pride in their accomplishments and a more positive view of the world and their place in it.
