ST. GEORGE, ON, Jan. 27, 2014 /CNW/ - A significant five-year pledge
from ARYZTA has enabled the Tim Horton Children's Foundation to move
one step closer to opening the seventh Foundation camp and increasing
the number of children served annually to more than 20,000.
As one of the largest bakery companies in the world, ARYZTA has a
leadership position in the speciality frozen bakery industry and is a
global supplier of baked goods to the foodservice, retail and QSR
sectors. The company strives to make positive contributions to its
community, by building relationships and earning a positive reputation
as a good employer, neighbour and corporate citizen.
In addition to this generous commitment to the Foundation's campaign for
new camp development, ARYZTA also supports the organization's food
program and attends golf tournaments and the Black Tie gala event each
As one of the organization's major partners, ARYZTA has shown
outstanding dedication to building brighter futures for economically
disadvantaged children from Tim Hortons communities across North
America. John Yamin, CEO of the Americas and Chief Marketing Officer,
ARYZTA, comments, "Supporting our youth is supporting the future.
ARYZTA is honored to be part of this great effort that Tim Hortons has
made for so many years in providing an opportunity to improve our
future by enriching the lives of disadvantaged children."
With the help of Tim Hortons Restaurant Owners, Foundation friends and
corporate partners, like ARYZTA, the Foundation provided memorable and
enriching camp experiences for more than 17,000 young people this year.
A Foundation camp experience is an opportunity for a child to gain
valuable life skills in a nurturing environment. Participating in
challenging activities during their time at camp inspires these
children and youth to set personal goals and reach new heights. The
campers receive encouragement from dedicated staff and in turn develop
confidence in their abilities and learn to take pride in their
accomplishments. Many of our campers return home as more caring,
responsible and motivated individuals.
