In an effort to enable local children to attend summer camp, Tim Hortons hosts Camp Day today in Stettler.

All proceeds from coffee sales today will be designated for the Tim Hortons Children’s Foundation.

“Funds raised on Camp Day and throughout the year allow us to send kids to camp at no cost to them or their families,” said Kim DeVloo, supervisor of the local Tim Hortons restaurant.

“With your support, we can help make a difference in the lives of thousands of deserving children.”

Plenty of fun and entertainment are expected to create a festive day, with several dignitaries, including Town of Stettler Mayor Dick Richards at 11 a.m.

A silent auction will also be part of the day, while 50-50 tickets are already on sale.

Activities continue with a balloon pop and drive-thru window-washing.

Last year, the event raised $4,857 in Stettler and more than $11 million across Canada and the U.S..

Since 1974, more than 185,000 children have benefitted from the foundation. This year, it’s projected more than 16,000 kids will enjoy one of six camps located in Kananaskis, Alta.; Parry Sound, Ont.; St. George, Ont.; Quyon, Que.; Tatamagouche, N.S.; and Campbellsville, Kentucky.
