  Cops Love Summer Camp Too

Jun 06, 2014 09:51 ET

DRP was proud to once again help out with Camp Day at Tim Hortons' restaurants across our region. At Regional Headquarters, newly appointed Chief Paul Martin helped hand out coffee and donuts to the delight of Durham Region employees. Also on deck was Deputy Chief Scott Burns, who cheerfully lent a hand to the cause during the morning rush. Officers helped out at locations across the region.

Patrons could purchase a tent for $2 or a cabin for $5 along with their morning coffee. Proceeds from each coffee sold are used to help send kids, who otherwise couldnt afford it, on the camping adventure of a lifetime. The kids, between age nine to 12, get the chance to attend a 10-day summer camp, or a seven-day winter camp, at one of the six camp locations operated by the Tim Hortons Children's Foundation.

For more information or to donate online visit Tim Hortons. Donations of $5 can also be made by texting CAMP to 45678.
