article imageTim Horton's Camp Day is June 1

By KJ Mullins     May 31, 2011 in World
On June 1 ever cup of coffee purchased at Tim Hortons will help to send a child to summer camp. Every year on June 1 the coffee shop giant donates every penny of their coffee sales to the Tim Horton Children’s Foundation.
More than 14,000 kids from 9 to 12 will be able to go to camp because of the yearly event. Campers either attend 10 days of summer camp or a week long winter camp session.
“It’s overwhelming each year, to see how Tim Hortons customers come together to support the Foundation,” says Bill Moir, President, Tim Horton Children’s Foundation in a press release. “On Camp Day, buying a cup of coffee and participating in the many activities helps give deserving kids, who live in your community, an experience to remember and inspire them for years to come. And that’s a good feeling.”
The Tim Hortons Foundation operates six camps in Canada and the United States; Onondaga Farms, Children's Ranch, Camp Kentahten, Children's Camp, Camp des Voyageurs and the first camp Tim Horton Memorial Camp, established in 1975 in Parry Sound, Ontario.
A non-profit, charitable organization the Foundation is committed to giving kids a chance to experience the wonders and growth that camps provide. Working closely with schools, social service agencies, churches and other youth organizations to identify the children that are in need the Foundation sends kids to a camp outside of their own province or state covering all the costs.
Children's camps have been shown to build leadership skills, self-confidence and self-esteem. All qualities that improve kids for the future.
