Robert: Tim Hortons to release new cup honouring essential and frontline workers
There are few honours that could possibly mean as much to a Canadian than having your name on a Tim Hortons cup.
As a “thank you” to essential and frontline workers fighting COVID-19, Tim Hortons is launching what they’re calling “Hero Cups.” Timmy Hos is calling on Canadians to nominate their favourite “frontline hero,” for a chance to have their name featured on a new, limited-edition cup.
According to the company, health-care workers, first responders, truck and transit drivers, retail staff, government members and “anyone else who has worked to keep the country running in these difficult times” are eligible for the honour.
“Frontline workers have been the backbone of our communities during these extremely difficult times,” reads a press release form the donut shop. “These limited-edition Tim Hortons Hero Cups are another opportunity to showcase some special people and let us all be a part of acknowledging their amazing contributions.”
Over 100 variations of the cup will be produced and distributed across Canada.
Nominations are open until June 24.
