100% of coffee sales send economically disadvantaged kids on a life-changing camp experience; Funds raised help Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop restaurant owners sponsor kids in their own community.
On Wednesday, June 3, Tim Hortons Camp Day, coffee orders will have added benefits. One hundred percent of coffee sales will be donated to the Tim Horton Children’s Foundation (THCF) helping to send 18,000 kids from low-income homes on a life-changing camp experience. This year, Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop guests can also round up their purchase to the nearest after-tax dollar to help ensure that even more kids can benefit from this enriching camp experience.
Camp Day is the THCF’s largest fundraising event of the year, and every dollar raised on Camp Day goes directly to sending kids to one of seven THCF camps across North America. Last year alone, $12.2 million was raised in Canada and the United States, allowing over 17,000 kids to spend a life-changing session at camp.
The THCF camp experience comes at absolutely no cost to kids and their families. With the help of funds raised on Camp Day, Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop restaurant owners sponsor kids directly from their community to attend camp and work closely with local youth organizations and schools to identify children who would benefit most from the experience. For many children, camp is the first time they have ever travelled outside of their community. While at camp, kids participate in a wide range of top tier programs and activities designed to build self-confidence, self-esteem and leadership skills. Children who attend camp often return home
Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop guests looking for more ways to help can make a donation any time at sendakidtocamp.com or by purchasing a Rent-a-Tent ($1) or Rent-a-Cabin ($5) in restaurant. A $5 donation can also be given by texting CAMP to 45678 in Canada and 41518 in the United States.
