It’s December 1st and the countdown to Christmas is officially on. This time of year more and more people start thinking about ways to give back and this year Tim Hortons is once again doing their part to give back to communities across Canada with their #WarmWishes campaign.
Things were kicked off back on November 16 in Calgary, Toronto, Hamilton, Vancouver, Montreal and Moncton where Tim Hortons completed 150 good deeds. The good deeds included purchasing chemo caps and hair scarves for the Cancer Assistance Program in Hamilton.
Across the country some of the deeds included:
- Donating baby wipes, formula, and diapers to the Pregnancy Resource Centre in Moncton
- Sorting and providing coats for the Children’s Breakfast Club coat drive in Toronto
- Decorating the family room of the Calgary Health Trust Neonatal Unit
- Honouring a Children’s Wish Foundation volunteer for 20 years of service in Montreal
- Arranging for Santa to deliver toys and games to the Boys and Girls Club of South and East Vancouver
I was able to make my way downtown (Hamilton) on the 16th where Tim Hortons had set up a Tim Hortons Warm Wishes truck. They were taking wish submissions throughout the morning in the form of good deeds to Hamiltonians and giving out free coffee to those who added their requests to the #WarmWishes cup onsite.
Tim Hortons had this to say about why they chose Hamilton as one of the 6 host cities. “We opened our first Tim Hortons restaurant in Hamilton and we’ve always shared a special connection with the community. With our Warm Wishes campaign and Cup of Good Deeds going national this year, we had to include Hamilton and we completed over 30 deeds in the city! This was our small way of giving back to the community as they’ve always given so much to us.”
