May 6, 2014
– National Day of Honour is Friday, May 9, 2014
In recognition of the National Day of Honour and to thank Canada's military personnel for their service and dedication to our country, all uniformed members of the Canadian Armed Forces will receive a free coffee at Tim Hortons restaurants on May 9, 2014.
As part of the National Day of Honour, Tim Hortons is also supporting the Tribute Breakfast for Families of the Fallen taking place in Ottawa on May 9, and the Soldier On Afghanistan Relay where a team of 19 carry the last Canadian flag flown in Afghanistan, from Trenton to Ottawa over a six-day period.
"Tim Hortons has a long-standing connection to Canada's military personnel and we are proud to be a part of National Day of Honour. Our participation is just one small way we recognize and thank Canada's military for all they do," said Roland Walton, President, Tim Hortons Canada.
The Government of Canada declared May 9, 2014, the National Day of Honour to commemorate Canada's military mission in Afghanistan and honour those who served and their families. From 2006 until 2012, Tim Hortons helped bring a taste of home to Canadian military personnel serving in Afghanistan with an outlet at the Kandahar Air Field.
