Cancer Society seeks volunteers for Daffodil Month

The annual event takes place in April, raising funds for cancer research and services.

The Canadian Cancer Society is seeking volunteers for its annual Daffodil Month in April.

The society has an urgent need for more volunteers to sell the daffodil pin. These volunteers will work in communities across B.C. during April to remind people to buy and wear a pin to show support for those fighting cancer.

“The daffodil pin is a bright and hopeful emblem that says we’re all in this together and we won’t give up until all forms of the disease are defeated,” said Margaret Jones-Bricker, director of the Canadian Cancer Society, northern region.

Volunteering to sell the pins requires three or four hours. Other volunteer opportunities during Daffodil Month include canvassing door to door, selling daffodils and organizing special events.

Funds raised during Daffodil Month go toward cancer research; providing information and delivering support programs and services to prevent cancer and to support people living with cancer, their families and caregivers; and advocating on behalf of Canadians on important health and cancer issues.
