It was Tim Hortons Camp Day today, and at the Tim Hortons in Fernie, there was a lot of fun and money-raising to be done!

Two Elk Valley kids will get to go to camp this summer after another successful camp day at Tim Hortons in Fernie.

Volunteers from the community helped out today, making coffee, cleaning tables and serving at the drive-thru window.

All coffee sales went towards the Camp Day cause.

Camp day is the one-day a year when Tim Hortons restaurant owners across Canada and the United States donate every penny from coffee sales to the Tim Horton Children’s Foundation. Last year, camp day raised more than $9.7 million.

The proceeds send kids, who could otherwise not afford it, on a camping trip of a lifetime.
