From a Tim Horton’s press release….

Every Penny From Coffee Sales On Camp Day, June 3rd Will Help Send Thousands Of Kids To Camp!

June 3, 2009- Dublin, OH – Wednesday, June 3 is Tim Hortons Camp Day! Camp Day is the one day each year when every penny from coffee sales at Tim Hortons stores across Canada and the United States will be donated to the Tim Horton Children’s Foundation.

On Camp Day, customers can buy a coffee and help send close to 14,000 kids on the camping adventure of a lifetime. Campers ages nine to 12 years attend a 10 day summer camp session, or a seven day winter camp session at one of the Foundation’s six camps. All children who attend the camps are selected by Tim Hortons Store Owners who work closely with local youth organizations and schools to identify kids who would most benefit from an experience at camp.

“The success of Camp Day would not be possible without the support of our loyal customers and dedicated Tim Hortons Store Owners and their staff,” says Bill Moir, President, Tim Horton Children’s Foundation. “By purchasing a cup of coffee on Camp Day you give kids who live in your community an experience to remember and inspire them for years to come.”

During their stay at camp, kids participate in a wide range of first-class programs and activities designed to build self-confidence, self esteem and leadership skills. The Foundation is committed to providing an enriching and memorable experience for campers, giving them confidence in their abilities, pride in their accomplishments and a more positive view of the world and their place in it.

Following a camp session, Pamela from Canadaigua, New York had this to say about her son’s camping experience: “I can’t thank you enough for giving my son the great gift of the Tatamagouche camp experience. It is a life enhancing experience he had that will always be remembered as a high point in his childhood. He misses camp very much, but has a newfound upbeat approach that is so nice to see. Thank you all for what you have done for my son and continue to do for so many children that would not otherwise have such a great opportunity. ”

Cold Stone and Tim Hortons To Team Up

7 02 2009

When I read the headline, I was a little shocked, but here it is.

Tim Hortons Inc. and the parent of Cold Stone Creamery said today they will team up to create up to 100 co-branded stores that will offer customers both ice cream and coffee shop fare.


The companies said they recently co-branded two existing Tim Hortons locations in Rhode Island with positive results.

Existing Cold Stone and Tim Hortons locations in Michigan, New York, Ohio, Rhode Island, Maine and Connecticut will be picked and reconfigured to offer both brands, the companies said.

The article mentions existing co-branded stores with Dunkin Donuts and Baskin Robbins which are pretty prevelant in the Chicagoland area.  It could work.  I hope they don’t change stores on South Cedar Street and in Holt.  That’s too close to home…

Tim Hortons on Cedar Street in Holt

Tim Hortons on Cedar Street in Holt

I never really think of Tim Hortons as a place to get a quick after dinner snack, but Monday night I was watching my favorite CBS show, How I Met Your Mother, and one of the characters actually threw out a Tim Hortons reference.  The character, Robin, is from Canada which is where Tim Hortons was founded.  She said something to the effect of ‘at least I didn’t say let’s go to Tim Hortons.’  Six months ago, I wouldn’t have had the slightest idea what she was talking about becuase there were no Tim Hortons in Illinois.  We found them for the first time when we moved to Lansing.

Around the time we moved here, I reviewed the Tim Hortons on South Cedar (review HERE) in Lansing after we stopped for lunch.  The Tim Hortons in Holt is a new store even since that review.  It sits in front of L & L Food Center on Cedar Street near Aurelius Road.  It’s not a very big building.  It’s about the perfect size for a coffee shop.  This trip was just for an after dinner snack.  I was still hungry, but we didn’t have anything to snack on, so I suggested we go get a cookie or something.  Read the rest of this entry »

Tim Horton’s Camp Day

3 06 2008

If you’re gonna buy a cup of coffee tomorrow (Wednesday, June 4), it may as well go towards a good cause.

Wednesday, June 4th, 2008, is a special day for Tim Hortons store owners, staff and customers. It’s Camp Day – the one day a year when every penny raised from coffee sales at participating Tim Hortons stores across Canada and the United States, will be donated to the Tim Horton Children’s Foundation.

What One Cup of Coffee Can Do

Every time a customer buys a coffee at Tim Hortons on Camp Day they will help send over 13,000 kids – who could otherwise not afford it – on the camping adventure of a lifetime. All children who attend the Foundation’s camp sessions are selected from within the communities where Tim Hortons stores are located. Tim Hortons store owners work closely with local youth organizations and schools to select appropriate children, between the ages of nine and 12, to attend a 10 day summer camp session or seven day winter camp session.

“Each year we are overwhelmed with the outpouring of support that we receive from our loyal customers and special guests on Camp Day,” says Bill Moir, President, Tim Horton Children’s Foundation. “Our customers like the fact that all they need to do to help deserving children is buy a cup of coffee. It’s what they already do every day – yet on Camp Day so many go above and beyond to show their support.”
