ASHLAND, OH - Officers and deputies from the Ashland Police Division and the Ashland County Sheriff's Office appeared behind the counter at Tim Hortons in Ashland Wednesday morning to serve up coffee and donuts, along with some good deeds.

Wednesday, June 5th is Tim Hortons Camp Day, and 100% of proceeds from every coffee purchased at participating locations in the U.S. and Canada will go to the Tim Hortons Foundation Camps that help kids from disadvantaged circumstances change their stories for the better.

Ashland Police Division's Detective Kim Mager, Lieutenant Garry Alting, and Sergeant Dorsey, along with Ashland County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Carl Richert, whipped up coffee and donuts to serve customers in an effort to help raise money. K-9 Officers were in attendance to greet some of the younger customers as well.

Tim Hortons District Manager Charlie Hill said, “Your coffee purchase can help make a difference in the lives of youth from disadvantaged circumstances across the country... In 2018, Camp Day raised more than $13.1 million for the Tim Hortons Foundation Camps... Every Camp Day donation counts, whether you buy a coffee on June 5th at your local Tim Hortons or make an online donation, you’re helping to change a kid’s life.”

Donations are made possible in a variety of ways. Joe Sheets, Tim Hortons General Manager commented, “For the fourth year, guests have the opportunity to donate $2 and receive a Camp Day bracelet available in four vibrant colors: red, blue, green and orange... Guests can round up their order, with the balance of the dollar going towards the Tim Hortons Foundation Camps.” In addition, 100% of every coffee purchase during the specified hours will be automatically donated to the camp.

A leader in youth development programming, Tim Hortons Foundation Camps support youth from low income homes between the ages of 12 to 16, an important developmental time that helps shape who they will become as adults. Through a multi-year, camp-based program, youth learn skills like leadership, resilience and responsibility which empower them to believe in their own potential and change their stories for the better.

With seven camps in North America that run Summer and year-round School Programs, youth are supported to thrive when they return home, to excel in post-secondary education, to succeed at work and to contribute positively to their communities. Entirely supported by restaurant owners, guests, and sponsors, Tim Hortons Foundation Camps invest in youth in every community that Tim Hortons serves.

The Foundation was established in 1974 by Ron Joyce, co-founder of Tim Hortons, in honor of Tim Horton’s love for children and his desire to help those less fortunate.

Attending a Tim Hortons Foundation Camps comes at absolutely no cost to kids or their families.

The program is supported by Tim Hortons Restaurant Owners and guests and invests in youth from every community Tim Hortons serves.

Today, there are seven Camps across North America:

Parry Sound, Ontario (opened in 1975)

Tatamagouche, Nova Scotia (opened in 1988)

Kananaskis, Alberta (opened in 1991)

Quyon, Quebec (opened in 1994)

Campbellsville, Kentucky (opened in 2001)

St. George, Ontario (opened in 2002)

Seven Sisters Falls, Manitoba (opened in 2015)
