TORONTO, July 20 2022 – With the support of 1,500 Tim Hortons restaurant owners, their team members and Tims guests from coast to coast to coast, this year’s 31st annual Camp Day raised over $12 million.
Every year on Camp Day, Tim Hortons and its restaurant owners donate 100 per cent of the proceeds from all hot coffee and iced coffee sales to Tim Hortons Foundation Camps to support sending youth from underserved communities to Tims Camps.
Camp Day has raised over $237 million in its history and has helped send more than 300,000 youth between the ages of 12 to 16 to a multi-year camp-based program at one of seven Tims Camps in Canada and the United States. Campers are equipped with skills like leadership, resilience, and responsibility, empowering them to open doors to their future.
“We’re so grateful for the support of our guests and from those who volunteered their time and efforts to have made this year’s Camp Day one to remember,” said Axel Schwan, President of Tim Hortons. “We can’t thank Canadians and Tims restaurant owners and their teams enough for such an incredible achievement – raising over $12 million – and helping us support the important work of Tim Hortons Foundation Camps.”
Guests can still support Tim Hortons Foundation Camps by making a one-time or monthly donation online any time at www.timscamps.com.
“Every dollar donated helps to inspire and motivate youth through our multi-year, overnight camp experiences that are uniquely powerful in quickly building critical skills and empowering campers to better cope with challenging circumstances in the future,” said Graham Oliver, a Tims restaurant owner and President of the Tim Hortons Foundation Camps.
“Many of the young people we support have never had the opportunity to experience camp or travel outside their city or town. Tims Camps can be a life-changing experience for our campers and we thank everyone for their continued support of Camp Day and Tim Hortons Foundation Camps.”
