American Cancer Society relaunches Daffodil Days campaign
ALBANY, NY (NEWS10) – Friday’s Giving on 10 is about the American Cancer Society (ACS) bringing back the annual Daffodil Days campaign. This campaign brings hope to cancer patients, caregivers and families, while providing much-needed funding to support the American Cancer Society’s groundbreaking research, programs and services.
“Cancer touches us all in one way or another,” noted Annemarie Dillon. “By supporting the American Cancer Society through Daffodil Days, you are not only warming the hearts of others with these beautiful first spring flowers, but you are also helping to advance the American Cancer Society’s mission to create a world without cancer through the critical areas of discovery, advocacy and patient support.
Individuals, small businesses and large corporations have supported ACS through the Daffodil Days campaign by donating flowers. These flowers have been used to brighten the spirits of loved ones or to say thank you to employees, friends and colleagues.
Annemarie added: “We are incredibly grateful to everyone who supports our rescue mission through their participation in Daffodil Days. We are especially grateful to Empire BlueCross for sponsoring this year’s campaign.
Daffodils can be ordered by donating $10 for a regular bouquet or $15 for mini potted daffodils. For a $25 donation, donors can order a Gift of Hope – bouquets of daffodils that the American Cancer Society delivers to patients at hospitals, treatment centers and other facilities in the Capital Region. .
Orders are taken until February 22. Flowers arrive the week of March 21. For more information on ordering flowers in the Capital Region, visit American Cancer Society website, or contact Annemarie Dillon at [email protected] or 518-245-3694.
