American Cancer Society Seeks Coordinators And Orders For Daffodil Days Festival

The American Cancer Society’s Annual Daffodil Days Festival is now in full swing and coordinators are needed to help sell daffodils in their businesses, organizations, and schools. Volunteers are also needed to help bundle, wrap, and/or deliver flowers and spread the gifts of hope and life during the last week of March.

Each spring, American Cancer Society volunteers welcome a deluge of daffodils straight from the fields of Washington State. Already recognized as the harbinger of spring and vibrant symbol of inspiration, the daffodil and the American Cancer Society’s Daffodil Days program have become a successful and heartening way to raise money and awareness for the cancer cause. Bunches (10 daffodils) are $6 each and support American Cancer Society research, advocacy, educational programs, and patient services.

Volunteers help their community and the American Cancer Society celebrate Daffodil Days during the last week in March by giving time to deliver the symbol of hope to businesses, schools, civic organizations, hospitals, and homes throughout the community.

Newtown resident Ivette Gerics, daffodil co-chair, explains, “There is nothing quite like handing over bunches of daffodils, particularly those that are given as Gifts of Hope [anonymous gifts given to cancer patients in our local hospitals].” To be a part of this year’s Daffodil Days, or to place an order, contact Mark Santeramo at 800/889-3340.
