Tim Hortons Camp Day Does It Again: A Record $11.8 Million Raised!

Camp Day continues to raise record numbers through coffee sales and generous donations to help send more than 16,000 kids to camp

DUBLIN, OH, June 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop's generous restaurant owners and loyal guests came together again to raise a record $11.8 million for the Tim Horton Children's Foundation's biggest fundraiser of the year. The money raised on Camp Day will help send more than 16,000 economically disadvantaged kids in the U.S. and Canada on a life-changing experience.

On Camp Day, more than 4,000 Tim Hortons restaurant locations in the United States and Canada generously donate all proceeds from coffee sales to the Tim Horton Children's Foundation (THCF) and host fundraising events to raise additional money for the camps. Last year's event raised a record $11 million, giving more than 15,000 kids the opportunity to experience the positive impact of a Tim Horton Children's Camp.

"Breaking the cycle of poverty and helping economically disadvantaged children aspire for a brighter future is at the heart of Tim Horton Children's Foundation," said Dave Newnham, vice president and executive director, Tim Horton Children's Foundation. "None of this would be possible without the support of our loyal guests and dedication of our Tim Hortons restaurant owners and team members. Thank you to everyone who bought a coffee and made a donation to help make this year's Camp Day a great success."

In addition to purchasing a Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop coffee on June 5, guests had the opportunity to directly support children in their community and send even more kids to camp by texting a $5 donation, donating online or making a donation in restaurant by purchasing a $1 Rent-a-Tent or $5 Rent-a-Cabin. Guests can also contribute year-round through sendakidtocamp.com and THCF coin boxes at Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop restaurants.

"Each and every donation made on Camp Day and throughout the year has the power to change the lives of children in your community," added Newnham. "The donations not only give thousands of deserving kids the chance to experience a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity each year, but it can make a lasting impact as children who attend our camp often return home with a more positive attitude and greater confidence about their future."
