Tim Horton's Camp Day

ROCK 94 presents TIM HORTON’S CAMP DAY!
June 3rd

Do you like drinking coffee? Do you enjoy a steaming cup of TIM HORTONS coffee? Do you enjoy helping people at the same time?
ON JUNE 3RD TIM HORTONS WILL BE DONATING THE MONEY SPENT ON COFFEE TO THEIR CAMP DAY PROMOTION

On Tim Hortons Camp Day, one hundred per cent of coffee sales are donated to the Tim Horton Children’s Foundation (THCF) helping to send 18,000 kids from low-income homes on a life-changing camp experience

Tim Hortons Camp Day gives children from economically disadvantaged homes an enriching opportunity that helps build lifelong skills. THCF Camps are specifically designed to help kids develop the skills and confidence needed to build a brighter future for themselves.
The THCF was established in 1974 by Ron Joyce, co-founder of Tim Hortons, in honour of Tim Horton’s love for children and his desire to help those less fortunate.
On average, the sale of 60 medium Tim Hortons coffees generates enough funds to send one child to camp for a day.
By the end of 2015, the THCF will have served more than 215,000 children since its inception in 1974
