Camp Day is coming on Wednesday, August 12th!
It’s the one day each year when Tim Hortons Restaurant Owners donate 100% of their hot coffee and iced coffee sales to the Tim Hortons® Foundation Camps who send local youth from disadvantaged circumstances to one of seven Camps across North America.
For the fifth year, Guests have the opportunity to donate $2 and receive a Camp Day bracelet available in four vibrant colors: red, blue, green and orange.
Guests can Round Up their order, with the balance of the dollar going towards the Tim Hortons® Foundation Camps. Guests can make a one-time or monthly donation online any time at http://www.timscamps.com
1 in 5 youth grow up in poverty, and when youth grow up in disadvantaged circumstances, the chances increase that the cycle of poverty is repeated, and their ability decreases to develop necessary skills to become successfuladults. Youth from low-income homes face additional obstacles when it comes to academic performance, relationship building and physical and emotional well-being. Youth from low-income homes are more likely to experience a wide variety of illnesses, hospital stays, accidents, mental health problems, lower school achievement and early drop-out, family violence and child abuse. Over the past four decades, the Tim Hortons® Foundation Camps have helped more than 295,000 youth from disadvantaged circumstances change their stories for the better. Every Camp Day donation counts. Whether you buy a hot or iced coffee on August 12th at your local Tim Hortons® or make an online donation, you’re helping to change a kid’s life.
Tim Hortons® Foundation Camps supports kids from disadvantaged circumstances between the ages of 12 to 16 during the most vulnerable time of their lives when they are determining who they will become asadults. Through a multi-year, camp-based program, they learn skills like leadership, resilience, and responsibility, empowering them to believe in their own potential and change their stories for the better. Attending a Tim Hortons® Foundation Camp comes at absolutely no cost to kids or their families.
