The Key Club is sponsoring Daffodil Days, a fundraiser to benefit the American Cancer Society.  Students and Staff can order their daffodils in C101 from Mr. Jeremy Brown, Key Club Advisor by February 2.  

Students and staff can purchase Daffodils in bunches ($10.00), in pots ($15.00) or even have a special delivery sent to cancer patients in hospitals ($25.00).

Every order counts. Do your part in making a cancer-free future. Daffodils are flowers that often are the first signs of the new spring season; these flowers also have a deeper symbolism, hope and new beginnings.

Shelby Tkacik is a member of Key Club and said the best part is, “seeing how willing people are to donate to a good cause. It is amazing to see the support.”

Each year, approximately 12.7 million people are diagnosed with cancer, and 7.6 million people die from the disease worldwide.

The ACS wants to spread the message to always look for light at the end of a tunnel, always find hope. Money raised from Daffodil Days contributes to cancer research, education, advocacy and patient support programs.

Childhood cancer fighter Lily Weaver said, “I think it’s absolutely amazing how people are starting to see the reality of cancer and helping to raise awareness especially for kids since not everyone has a voice.” 

Key Club members have created posters that are posted throughout the halls, to inform the community. Email Mr. Brown at [email protected] or go to room C101 for more information.
