Amherst, N.Y. – On Wednesday, June 3, representatives from the Daemen College Athletic Department volunteered at four area Tim Hortons locations as part of its annual Tim Hortons Children’s Foundation Camp Day which aims to raise funds to send kids from low-income families to camp for an unforgettable experience this summer.
As part of its Camp Day celebration, Tim Hortons donates 100-percent of its coffee sales that day to the Tim Horton Children’s Foundation. In addition, volunteers from local organizations, such as Daemen Athletics, participate in the festivities by welcoming guests, serving coffee and thanking customers for their donations.
“We, at Daemen Athletics, were honored to participate in the annual Tim Hortons Camp Day,” said Dawn Reed, Assistant Athletic Director for External Relations, who organized Daemen Athletics’ involvement. “We are grateful for the investment the Tim Hortons Children’s Foundation makes in the Western New York community and are proud to support these initiatives.”
Officials from various Daemen teams participated in the event, including men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s tennis, men’s and women’s cross country/track and field and men’s golf. Director of Athletics Bridget Niland and Associate Athletic Director Jessica Gorski were also on hand.
All-in-all, Tim Hortons raised $12.4 million on Camp Day across all of its locations in North America.
