Tim Hortons Selling Fundraising Donuts In Western New York
Starting this morning, Tim Horton's locations in Western New York will be selling a special "Buffalo Community Donut" to help raise funds for those Western New Yorkers affected by the tragic shooting on Jefferson Ave.
All the proceeds from the donuts will be donated to the Buffalo 5/14 Survivors Fund, which is administered by the National Compassion Fund. Each donut will cost $2 plus tax and features white frosting and blue sprinkles.
The donuts will be available for sale starting this morning and will be on sale until May 31st at select Tom Horton's in New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.
10 Western New Yorkers lost their lives on May 14th during the mass shooting that took place on Jefferson Ave in the City of Buffalo.
If donuts are not part of your morning routine, there are still other ways to help those affected by the mass shooting.
