Evolving into a mandatory part of many morning routines, getting caffeinated had an added benefit yesterday.

On Wednesday, June 5, Tim Hortons restaurants took part in camp day. The annual event, which is geared towards raising money to send deserving kids to camp, also saw community leaders helping out for a good cause: Without exception, 100-per-cent of coffee sales went to the Tim Hortons Children’s Foundation

Staff and volunteers worked towards this goal in several innovate ways. Locally, the double drive-thru located at 3100 Jefferson Blvd. (near the E.C Row Express Way) had raffles, face painting, design your own donut, window washing and pick-a-stick — anyone who donated got a free prize which was written on the stick they chose.

Over 14,000 children nine to 12-years-old will benefit from the money raised on camp day. Kids chosen by store owners, working closely with schools and local youth organizations, will either attend a 10-day summer or 7-day winter session at one of the foundation’s six camps.

For those who missed camp day and still want to donate, you’re in luck. Tim Horton’s is still accepting donations on their website.
