When loved ones are diagnosed with or pass away from cancer, we often want to do something to help or honour them. This April, the Canadian Cancer Society wants the people of Sault Ste. Marie to know that there is something they can do.
This April, by volunteering just a couple hours of their time selling daffodil pins or canvass door-to-door for a donation, in support of the Society’s Daffodil Month campaign local residents can save lives and help people who are living with cancer now.
Money raised through Daffodil Month helps local patients and their families living with more than 200 different types of cancer, by doing everything we can to prevent cancer from ever happening in the first place, funding research and clinical trials to outsmart cancer and empowering, informing, supporting and improving the lives of Canadians living with cancer so that fewer Canadians are touched by the disease. You’ll also be supporting our local Algoma Peer Support, Information and Referral and Wheels of Hope transportation programs.
We need your help to get the word out to recruit Daffodil Month volunteers!
Volunteers are essential to the success of the Daffodil Month campaign and we are looking for people who can spare a few hours to help out during this critical fundraising time for our organization. To some, the daffodil is just a flower. To us, it is a symbol of strength and courage, a symbol of life. It says we will not give up. It says we will fight back. It says we will beat cancer.
As few as two hours could make all the difference in the life of someone facing cancer. When volunteers help sell daffodil pins or canvass door-to-door for a donation for the Canadian Cancer Society during Daffodil Month this April, they will help save lives and support those living with cancer.
We need volunteers throughout the month of April for our Residential Canvassing Campaign and on the following dates to sell daffodil pins: March 31- April 3. Those interested in signing up as a Daffodil Month volunteer can register at vhub.at/Algoma or contact Carly at (705)253-4781 or [email protected].
