Military police members from 22 Wing/Canadian Forces Base North Bay joined the staff at the Tim Hortons on McKeown Avenue for Camp Day on Wednesday, June 4th , 2008 to help raise money for kids to go to camp.
Community Relations Officer, Corporal Darrell Coughlin and Sergeant David Degrasse acted as squeegee boys for the morning collecting donations from coffee drinkers going through the “Timmies” drive-thru.
Later Cpl Coughlin handed over the monies from the donation box to Ralph Closs, one of the store managers.
Inside the restaurant, Cpl Michael “Hollywood” Taylor, guest server, could be seen providing customers with their orders.
Camp Day is the one day a year when every penny raised from coffee sales at participating Tim Hortons restaurants across Canada and United States donate to the Tim Horton Children’s Foundation. Campers aged nine to 12 years of afe have the opportunity to 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 camp are selected by Tim Horton’s store owners who work closely with local youth organizations and schools to identify kids who would most benefit from an experience at camp.
