BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Wednesday is Camp Day at Tim Hortons restaurants. Owners will donate 100 percent of the proceeds from coffee sales to the Tim Horton Children’s Foundation.
In 2013, Camp Day raised $11.8 million for the foundations. The money impacted more than 16,000 economically disadvantaged children. The children who are selected live within the communities where Tim Hortons restaurants are located.
Tim Hortons Regional Manager Richard Sabin said, “It’s nice to give back. Every year when we send the kids to camp, they write letters back to the owners, and we get to read them and the way that they feel and how they get to experience something that they don’t do every day, really makes us all feel good that we can give back to the community.”
Owners work closely with local youth organizations and schools to select the children, between ages of nine and 12. The camp is a 10-day summer camp session or seven-day winter camp session.
