"For one week starting Sept. 30, Tim Hortons will donate 100 per cent of the retail price of orange-sprinkled doughnuts to the Orange Shirt Society and the Indian Residential School Survivors Society."
"The federal government announced earlier this year that Sept. 30 would be the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, a new statutory holiday.
It’s also Orange Shirt Day, an Indigenous-led grassroots commemorative day that has been observed since 2013 when Phyllis Webstad shared her story of her first day of school. It was 1973 when the six-year-old went to St. Joseph's Mission Residential School in B.C. wearing an orange shirt from her grandmother. The shirt was taken away never to be seen again."
