Canadian Cancer Society asking for help with Daffodil campaign

The Canadian Cancer Society is in great need of volunteers who have a flowery personality.

The society is seeking people willing to help out with the Daffodil Month fundraising campaign next month and especially needs door-to-door canvassers or those who can canvass online.

With the Relay for Life in Nanaimo holding its final event last June, the Canadian Cancer Society is relying more than ever on Daffodil Month donations, noted a cancer society press release.

“We are a volunteer -run organization that relies on the help and dedication of countless individuals. We desperately need more volunteers this April to help raise funds so we can continue our mission work” said Tanya Davis, mid Island annual giving coordinator, in the press release.

The campaign supports free services in the community free of charge, including a wig and prosthesis bank, resource centre, financial assistance, rides to treatment and more. It also supports research into treatments and goes toward cancer prevention and advocacy work.

For more information, call Davis at 250-888-9497, e-mail tanya.davis@bc.cancer.ca or visit www.cancer.ca/daffodil.
