Building brighter futures one coffee at a time, DRPS members are volunteering their services throughout the day on May 31 in support of Tim Hortons annual Camp Day fundraiser.
At participating Tim Hortons restaurants across Canada and the U.S., 100 per cent of proceeds from hot coffee sales will help send thousands of kids from low-income families to camp. At seven beautiful sites across North America, children aged 11-16 participate in programs and activities deliberately designed to build self-confidence, self-esteem and leadership skills.
Operated by the Tim Horton Children's Foundation, camp focuses on helping youth become resourceful, responsible and empowered individuals through repeated experiences over a five year period. It provides them with the tools they need to build brighter futures for themselves and have a positive impact in their communities. Between camp visits, youth also complete constructive actions meant to support the transfer of learning back home.
Buying a coffee on May 31st isn't the only way to support Camp Day. Returning for the second year are limited edition Camp Day bracelets, available now in red, blue, orange and green for $2.00 plus tax. All proceeds from bracelet purchases support the Tim Horton Children's Foundation. A one-time or monthly donation can also be made online at any time by visiting http://timscampday.com.
Through combined sales of hot coffee and bracelet purchases last year alone, Canadians helped to send 19,000 kids to camp and raised more than $13.1 million.
