Tim Hortons Camp Day is June 3rd!



    Buy a Cup of Coffee and Help Change a Child's Life

    TORONTO, June 2 /CNW/ - Wednesday, June 3 is Tim Hortons Camp Day! Camp
Day is the one day each year when every penny from coffee sales at Tim Hortons
stores across Canada and the United States will be donated to the Tim Horton
Children's Foundation.
    On Camp Day, customers can buy a coffee and help send close to 14,000
kids on the camping adventure of a lifetime. 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. All children who attend camp are selected by
Tim Hortons store owners who work closely with local youth organizations and
schools to identify kids who would most benefit from an experience at camp.
    "The success of Camp Day would not be possible without the support of our
loyal customers and dedicated Tim Hortons Store Owners and their staff," says
Bill Moir, President, Tim Horton Children's Foundation. "By purchasing a cup
of coffee on Camp Day you give kids who live in your community an experience
to remember and 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.
    Following a camp session, Lorene from Calgary, Alberta had this to say
about her son's camping experience: "Thank you for the wonderful experience
that my son had with your camp. He will forever and always have fond memories
of all the activities, the friends he made and the camp instructors as well as
the beautiful camp location! Your camp was most definitely one of the best
experiences he has ever participated in. He has been much more positive and
seems to have shed many of the insecurities that he had pervious to camp. I
believe that the Tim Horton Children's Foundation experience deserves much of
the credit for the life and attitude changes that have enveloped him."
