Camp Day in Glengarry
On June 6, Tim Hortons restaurants from across Glengarry participated in the annual Camp Day fundraising drive, where 100 per cent of proceeds from hot coffee sales is donated to the Tim Horton Children’s Foundation.
In Glengarry’s case, Tim Hortons customers also had the opportunity to participate in various fundraising activities such as the Dollar Drop, Spin to Win, Peel’n’Win, plant sales, windshield washing and barbecues.
Local Tim Hortons managers were eager to point out the importance of volunteers and local businesses in making Camp Day a success. Businesses in the area donated hot dogs and sausages, plants, gift sets, clothing and other prize items while volunteers donated their time and efforts.
The foundation operates seven Tim Hortons Camps across Canada and the U.S. Open yearround, the camps deliver programs designed to build self-esteem and leadership skills.
This year, Camp Day proceeds will help send more than 20,000 kids from low-income homes to a Tim Horton Camp for a lifechanging experience.
“It makes a big difference in the lives of children,” said Tim Hortons manager Tina Duchesne. “Knowing that we helped put a smile on a child’s face brightens our day.”
It’s not too late to donate. Pop by one of your local Tim Hortons restaurants or visit www.timhortons.com/campday to contribute online.
