A bake sale today — Monday, Nov. 28 — from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the student centre commons will raise funds in support of Orange Shirt Day, commemorated on campus each Sept. 30 to honour residential school survivors, their families, and communities.
Volunteers will offer an array of baked goods and coffee by donation, and also selling copies of the campus cookbook, youth and adult T-shirts, and lawn signs from the annual campaign. These latter items range in price from $20 to $30 and may be purchased by debit or credit card.
“Our committee and our students have done an amazing job of working together to raise funds for Indigenous students on campus,” says Kat Pasquach, Aboriginal outreach and retention co-ordinator. “The initiatives have been growing in size each year and a part of the goal is to eventually see everyone on campus wearing an orange T-shirt to show their solidarity.”
