Volunteers needed for Daffodil Days
Friday, January 11, 2013
The American Cancer Society is seeking volunteers for Daffodil Days, a beloved program to welcome spring and help raise funds and awareness to fight cancer and to create a world with more birthdays.
Individuals will work in event planning, promotions and sales and assist with coordinating daffodil orders through March 1. Volunteer support for daffodil deliveries is needed the week of March 18.
For more information or to pledge your support, contact Kelly Heinze, development executive at the American Cancer Society office in Bedford, at 471-4106 or email@example.com, or visit www.cancer.org/daffodils.
In appreciation for their contribution to Daffodil Days, donors receive daffodil bouquets or also may choose to send anonymous Gifts of Hope to cancer patients in treatment. It is about more than just giving beautiful flowers; it is an opportunity to share hope for a world where cancer never steals another year from anyone’s life.
The American Cancer Society offers free services to cancer patients such as Look Good Feel Better, a program that teaches female cancer patients hair and makeup tips to help them cope with the appearance-related side effects of cancer treatment; Road to Recovery, free rides to cancer treatment; and Hope Lodge, a home away from home for those receiving medical care. The American Cancer Society offers free cancer information all day, every day, through 1-800-227-2345 and cancer.org.
