The Vermilion Tim Hortons location held a Camp Day celebration in collaboration with others across the country on June 5.
Proceeds from coffee purchases, bracelet purchases, and donations all went to support children; giving them the opportunity to attend a summer camp. New this year, customers had the opportunity to round up their orders to the nearest dollar if they wished as an additional way to help support Camp Day.
“The Town of Vermilion would like to thank Tm Hortons for putting on Camp Day. The volunteer experience is amazing. It gives you a whole new perspective, seeing the way people move around and understanding what goes into making your breakfast. It is a lot of hard work and amazing doesn’t even come close to describing the people; they are so fun, and you are going to get quality service. It is like a mini family.
Camp Day is a great cause supporting families who are unable to afford it. Camp is the number one experience that young individuals can have to experience the outdoors and making friends, with activities that are not available in their home or classroom,” said Town of Vermilion Councillor, Greg Barr.
“We would like to thank everyone for their cooperation and assistance. We are so thankful to the community for all of their support,” said Manager Rommel Mandocdoc.
