Members of the Columbus Blue Jackets Organization Participate in \'Camp Day\'

Wednesday, June 7 was a special day for Tim Hortons store owners, staff and customers. It’s Camp Day – the one day a year when every penny raised from coffee sales at participating Tim Hortons stores across Canada and the United States, will be donated to the Tim Horton Children’s Foundation.

Established in 1986, Camp Day gives customers the opportunity to buy a coffee and help send over 11,000 kids – who could not otherwise afford it – on the camping adventure of a lifetime. All children who attend the Foundation’s camp sessions are selected by Tim Hortons store owners who work closely with local youth organizations and schools to choose kids who would most benefit from an experience at camp. Campers, aged nine to 12 years, attend a 10 day summer camp session or a seven day winter camp session at one of the Foundation’s six camps.

“By purchasing a coffee on Camp Day, our customers give kids who live in their very own community, an experience to remember and inspire them for years to come,” Don Schroeder, president of the Tim Horton Children’s Foundation, said. “Truly, every coffee counts. Thanks to the generous contributions of our customers, we raised $6.4 million (Cdn) on Camp Day last year. This year, we are hoping to exceed that amount and send even more kids to camp.”
