Tim Horton's locations across Canada are now collecting pennies to raise money for the Tim Horton's Children's Foundation.

Each year, the foundation collects almost $1 million in pennies dropped into collection boxes at restaurants. The money supports camp trips for kids.

"Tim Hortons guests have proven year after year that just one penny can make a difference in the lives of deserving children," said Dave Newnham, vice president and executive director, Tim Horton Children's Foundation. "The approximate $1 million the Foundation raises each year through penny donations in restaurant coin boxes sends hundreds and hundreds of kids to camp. These are children for whom we can effect positive change and a greater confidence about their future."

The Tim Horton Children's Foundation started in 1975 in Parry Sound, Ontario. It now operates six year-round camps across North America and has served more than 165,000 kids through its programs.

In 2012, the Tim Horton Children's Foundation sent more than 15,000 children to camp. More than 75 percent of revenue generated by the ffoundation comes from Camp Day activities and Tim Hortons coin boxes, with coin boxes at Tim Hortons counters and drive-thrus raising about $7 million annually.
