And while it's successfully gotten people talking, a representative told BuzzFeed that this is "more than serving coffee; it’s about serving the neighbourhood."

"Our Tim Hortons team members are out in the community, surprising neighbours by tackling their to-do lists, and dropping off thank you gifts," Katherine Galley, a Public Affairs personnel for the company told us via email. "[They're] demonstrating that working at Tim Hortons is about more than serving coffee; it’s about serving the neighbourhood."
