Partnership Between The Tim Horton Children’s Foundation and the Ted Nolan Foundation.
It is with great pleasure that we announce the partnership of Tim Horton Children’s Foundation and the Ted Nolan Foundation to run the First Aboriginal youth leadership camp from October 22 through to October 26, 2009.
We will be hosting 50 First Nations students chosen by the two school boards in Sault Ste. Marie, both boys and girls ages 11-15 years old at the beautiful Onondaga farm.
Thank you again to the Tim Horton Children’s Foundation for making this possible
About The Tim Horton Children’s Foundation
The Tim Horton Children’s Foundation was established in 1974 by Ron Joyce, Co-Founder of the Tim Hortons chain, to honour Tim Horton’s love for children and his desire to help those less fortunate. The Foundation is a non-prot, charitable organization committed to providing a fun-filled camp environment for children from economically disadvantaged homes. Year-round, local children are selected from each of the communities in which a Tim Hortons store operates, giving thousands of children the opportunity to attend
one of our camps.
Children living in economically disadvantaged homes often do not have access to supports that develop positive life skills. With 1 in 6 children across Canada and the United States living in an economically disadvantaged homes, the Tim Horton Children’s Foundation provides opportunities for these children to develop into positive, contributing members of their communities.
The Tim Horton Children’s Foundation camp experience is designed to give children confidence in their abilities through participation in challenging programs. They experience pride in their accomplishments as they succeed in attaining their goals, and they gain a positive view of this world and their future in it.
This year the Foundation will serve close to 14,000 children from economically disadvantaged homes. Together we are truly making a difference.
