SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Today is Tim Horton's Camp Day and 100 percent of the proceeds from coffee sales will help the Tim Horton's Children's Foundation send a kid to camp. Sales will help send more than 15,000 children from across the country to one of six camps.
Local officials say a small purchase can go a long way.
"Help a kid to maybe, who would eventually maybe go on the wrong path, to show him, what kind of skills he might have and give him the ability to do some good things in life," said Frank Crisalli, Tim Horton's franchisee.
This is the Tim Horton's largest fundraiser of the year, and last year, Camp Day was able to raise more than $9 million across the U.S. and Canada for this cause.
