Tim Hortons donates $52,000 to Care & Share Saskatoon
Care & Share Saskatoon is receiving a big boost thanks to coffee sales at the Brier.
Tim Hortons announced a $52,000 donation to the Saskatoon-based charity for kids in need, all from the coffee shop's kiosks set up at this year's curling tournament.
"It is an honour to contribute to such a worthy, local organization," Danielle Robson, a Saskatoon Tim Hortons owner, said in a press release.
"Care & Share provides tremendous support to Saskatoon's children and we know they will continue to do great work within our community."
The organization started in 1997 to help less fortunate children in the city -- with the help of community school co-ordinators lists of items, services and programs are created based on children's needs. Care & Share then funds these programs, making them available to all 17 Saskatoon community schools.
"We truly value their support. This very generous donation will allow us to create so many more opportunities and smiles for the children in Saskatoon's community schools,"said Sandi Meldrum, executive director, Care & Share Saskatoon.
The Brier in Saskatoon in early March was the 83rd edition of the curling tournament and the eighth one sponsored by Tim Hortons.
