Tim Hortons Camp Day is June 4th!



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

    TORONTO, June 3 /CNW/ - Wednesday, June 4 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 have the opportunity to buy a coffee and help send
over 13,000 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 outpouring of support that we receive from loyal Tim Hortons
customers is what makes Camp Day an overwhelming success each year," says Dave
Newnham Vice President, Tim Horton Children's Foundation. "Supporting Camp Day
gives economically disadvantaged kids the opportunity to experience a camping
adventure that will 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, Kim from Ancaster, Ontario had this to say
about her son's camping experience. "Camp was an awesome experience that my
son will not soon forget! Thanks so much for providing for him what I could
not right now. My heart has been touched by the kindness and generosity of
others."

    The Tim Horton Children's Foundation is a non-profit charitable
organization founded in 1974. Funding for the Foundation comes from Camp Day,
fundraising activities, special events, year-round public donations collected
through counter and drive-thru coin boxes and other donations. Since 1975 over
108,000 children have attended a Foundation camp at no cost to them or their
families. For more information about The Tim Horton Children's Foundation
