Whatever you call it, a cup of coffee is one of humankind’s greatest inventions. But what makes it even better is if you buy a cup of coffee – or an entire carafe – on Camp Day at Tim Hortons on Wednesday, June 5th.
Not only will you get to enjoy a classic Canadian brew, you will be helping send kids to camp as well.
Bethany Taylor, co-owner of Invermere Tim Hortons, said the atmosphere is always festive for the annual event, and says if you walk into Tim Hortons that day, expect it to feel like a party.
“This is the event of the year,” at Tim Hortons, Ms. Taylor remarked.
There will be live music throughout the day, special celebrity servers, and fun all around as the local restaurant raises money to send kids from disadvantaged circumstances to summer camp.
Ms. Taylor attended summer camps as a kid, so she knows firsthand how great it is to open up the cabin doors to children who otherwise could not afford it.
“It gives kids a chance to spread their wings in a safe environment. They get to learn responsibility, and try new things,” she commented. “It’s that step into a bigger world.”
On Camp Day, 100 per cent of proceeds from all coffee sales go to the Tim Hortons Foundations camps. Through a multi-year, camp-based program, children aged 12 to 16 learn skills like leadership, resilience, and responsibility.
Ms. Taylor is still looking for people interested in volunteering to serve coffee, wash windows, entertain the crowds, or help out in any other way.
You can volunteer for as little as 30 minutes and as long as the whole day.
