Some java drinkers in Ottawa might have an extra spring in their step this morning and not just because of the caffeine injection.
A man who wished to remain anonymous generously donated $860 in free coffee to the Tim Hortons on Terminal Avenue Wednesday at about 6:35 a.m., according to manager, Melissa Dass.
The random act of kindness follows similar gestures in Edmonton and Calgary earlier this week where a customer walked into the store and racked up a $859 bill to pay for the next customer’s orders.
Dass said the Ottawa man came into Tim Hortons at about 6:35 a.m.
“He didn’t leave any information. He didn’t reveal anything. He wanted to be secretive, just as a goodwill, generous donation to make people happy,” Dass told Metro. “He said this is the second store he’s chosen.”
She said the donation could pay for more than 500 coffees.
