Sometimes it's the small things that count.

That was the case at the Tim Hortons on Marquis Rd. this morning, as Power 99 suprised customers in the drive-thru by paying for their orders. Drivers could pay it forward by paying for those behind them in line.

“The more people we can make happy today, the better,” owner Cheryl Sander said.

Every Monday throughout the month, Power 99 will be at various locations at random times to surprise unsuspecting customers.

This is not the first time the restaurant has done such a thing, as, over the holidays, Sander said her location performs similar acts.

“When people are feeling the brunt of the shopping season, we try to brighten up their day at the window just to get a smile on their face,” she said. 

Though a simple act, Sander said “there have been emotional people at the window,”

“Many are in shock. It is nice to see and if you could see the look on their face it is pretty remarkable.”

Today's random acts of kindness come ahead of Tim Hortons Camp Day.

Every dollar from coffee sold on May 31 will be given to charity. Here in Prince Albert, the Children's Ward at the Victoria Hospital is this year's recipient. Over the past number of years, the money has been used to purchase a multitude of upgrades.

Each Tim Hortons location sends two disadvantaged children to camp. The eight selected from Prince Albert will attend the Kananaskis Camp outside Calgary, Alta.
