Florida Tile donates to Tim Horton Children's Foundation Camp Kentahten

October 5, 2011
Personal expressions are what the children at The Tim Horton Children's Foundation Camp Kentahten in Kentucky made of donations from Florida Tile this summer. They custom-painted 1,000 6-inch tiles donated by the company which were then re-fired in the camp kiln and installed around the sink area of the camp's art area.

At Camp Kentahten there are six summer sessions -- each session hosting 100 children. The foundation, established in 1974 to honor Tim Horton's love for children and his desire to help those less fortunate, is a non-profit, charitable organization committed to providing a fun-filled camp environment for children from economically disadvantaged homes.

Funding comes primarily from donations from individual Tim Hortons restaurant owners, Tim Hortons Inc., suppliers, individual donations and from public donations collected year-round through counter coin boxes located at every Tim Hortons outlet.
