The Canadian Cancer Society is currently looking for enthusiastic and community minded volunteers to support the annual Daffodil Campaign.

During the month of April, daffodil pins and fresh cut flowers are sold across Canada to raise funds and awareness for the Canadian Cancer Society. Wearing a daffodil pin is a way to show Canadians with cancer that they are not alone. Funds raised through the Daffodil Campaign will make a difference by helping to build community awareness and capacity for research, cancer prevention, and support programs for those living with cancer.

April is the month to fight back!

Retail Pin Volunteers work with the Retail Pin Leader in their community to assemble, distribute, service, collect and track boxes of daffodil pins in retail locations close to their home, work or school.
