OAKVILLE, ON, July 3, 2013 /CNW/ - In a few short days, Tim Hortons guests
across Alberta have shown their amazing generosity and unwavering commitment
to those affected by the Southern Alberta floods, by helping to raise nearly
$140,000 through Alberta Rose donut sales alone.
Available at participating Tim Hortons restaurants in Alberta, the Alberta
Rose donut was created as part of Tim Hortons multi-level support program to
aid flood-damaged Southern Alberta communities with 100 per cent of the sales
from the $1 baked good going directly to Red Cross flood relief efforts.
"We cannot thank our guests and team members enough for coming together to
show their support for those affected by the floods in Alberta. We're proud of
the role our Alberta Rose donuts have played in directly supporting the flood
relief efforts," explains Al Meyers, franchisee, Tim Hortons, on behalf of all
Alberta Tim Hortons restaurant owners. "In just a matter of days we have sold
close to 140,000 Alberta Rose donuts, raising nearly $140,000 so far."
The iconic donuts will continue to be available at Alberta Tim Hortons
restaurants until this Friday, July 5(th).
"Today, as we have re-opened our High River Tim Hortons location, the last of
our flood affected restaurants, we continue to be committed to working side by
side with our fellow Albertans to recover, restore and rebuild this great
province," says Doug Anthony, Vice President, Western Canada, Tim Hortons.
As part of its commitment to supporting communities across Southern Alberta,
Tim Hortons has also donated $100,000 to the Canadian Red Cross Alberta Floods
Fund, and is continuing to provide on-the-ground support to volunteer efforts
in flood affected communities. Canadians can also help by texting "FLOOD" to
45678 to donate $5, with all proceeds going to the Canadian Red Cross Alberta
