Engaging with the community is key for every Tim Hortons restaurant. Every year on Tim Hortons Camp Day, 100 percent of purchases from every coffee sold are donated to Tim Hortons Foundation Camps, which support underserved youth. In addition, the annual week-long Smile Cookie campaign donates 100% of the purchase price from Smile Cookies to local charitable and non-profit organizations in every Tim Hortons community. To date, more than $235 million has been raised through Camp Day and Smile Cookie across North America.

Tim Hortons was established in 1964 by its namesake founder and legendary hockey player, Tim Horton, a member of the official list of the 100 Greatest NHL Players. Since then, his successful restaurant chain has grown to over 5,200 locations across the globe and is already one of the largest coffee chains in the U.S., currently with over 600 locations primarily concentrated in Ohio, Michigan and western New York. From his humble beginnings in Canada, Tim worked hard to become a world-class athlete and sought to have a big impact in his community by opening coffee shops to create “a place where anyone can go at any time and feel at home.”
