Orange Shirt Day
Orange Shirt Day is September 30, 2021. Orange Shirt Day is an annual day to recognize and raise awareness to the residential school system in Canada, join together in the spirit of reconciliation, and honour the experiences of Indigenous Peoples. The date, September 30th, was selected to commemorate the time of year that Indigenous children were taken from their families to attend residential schools. Willowbridge stands in solidarity with our Indigenous neighbours, clients, staff, and community, and would like to encourage donating by ordering orange t-shirts from Woodland Cultural Centre here.
We are happy to be welcoming back our Routes Respite community as we emerge from a long lockdown!
