TORONTO — From Sept. 30 to Oct. 6, 2021, Tim Hortons restaurants across Canada will be donating all of the proceeds from its orange-sprinkled doughnut sales to the Orange Shirt Society and the Indian Residential School Survivors Society.
“We’re proud that Tim Hortons owners across Canada are joining us in this initiative that will raise some important funds and awareness for two organizations that do critical work to help support survivors of the residential school system,” says Gottfriedson, former Tk’emlups te Secwepemc First Nation chief and former B.C. regional chief for the Assembly of First Nations.
“At the heart of the Tims Hortons brand is supporting the communities where we serve, and right across Canada, the Tims family felt devastated by the horrific news in Kamloops and the subsequent discoveries that were made at other former residential schools, including in Brandon, Marieval, Kootenay and Kuper Island [in B.C.],” says Hope Bagozzi, Chief Marketing Officer for Tim Hortons. “We hope Canadians will join us in marking Sept. 30 as a day of reflection and support this campaign through Oct. 6 to help the Orange Shirt Society and the Indian Residential School Survivors Society.”
