Canadian Cancer Society needs volunteers

The Halton unit of Canadian Cancer Society is seeking volunteers to help sell daffodil pins as part of Daffodil Month held in April, a crucial funding time for the organisation.

Volunteers are needed for activities such as selling daffodil pins and flowers in their communities and door to door canvassing.

Money raised during Daffodil Month helps the cancer patients and their families in communities across Canada. The funds assist patients and their families living with around 200 different types of Cancer.

Saving lives

“Volunteering for a few hours, selling daffodil pins at local grocery stores and retail businesses will mean saving lives and helping people who are living with cancer,” the Canadian Cancer Society stated in a media release.

The organization also expressed their gratitude to all the volunteers for their hard work and efforts over the years.

The money raised during Daffodil Month is also used for funding Canada’s best researchers, who tirelessly work to develop a major breakthrough to cure cancer.

This year, volunteers will be in Halton communities over two weekends from April 9 to 12 and from April 16 to 19.

Volunteer site co-ordinators, who are willing to work at various locations for two to four days, can also join this battle against cancer.
