Give Daffodils, Give Hope

SPECIAL TO THE NEWS

The American Cancer Society Daffodil Days is coming soon! Fulton County residents have until Monday February 22, 2010, to place their orders for daffodils.

The daffodil is the first flower of spring, and is the perennial American Cancer Society symbol of hope for cancer patients throughout the community. The dollars raised through Daffodil Days enable the American Cancer Society to save more lives and create more birthdays by helping people stay well, helping people get well, by finding cures, and by fighting back.

Receive a bunch of 10 flowers for a donation of $10, box of 500 for $500, or a half box of 250 for $250. This year also marks the addition of Birthdays R. Hope, the sixth in a special Boyds Bear collection designed exclusively for the American Cancer Society Daffodil Days Bear and a Bunch that can be ordered for a donation of $25. A special edition Daffodil Days vase with 10 flowers or a vase and a bunch is also available for a donation of $15. Also, you can help give comfort to a child in need in your community by delivering an anonymous Boyds Bear to them with a donation of $25 to Project Care. In addition, Gift of Hope offers a chance to deliver an anonymous bunch of daffodils and cancer information to a local cancer patient with a donation of $25 or more.

To place an order, call the American Cancer Society office at 717-264-6266. The last day to place an order is Monday, February 22; daffodils will be delivered the week of March 15-21, 2010.
