MORRIS, Minn. - A new season of hope has arrived in Stevens County, thanks to the American Cancer Society Daffodil Days, which begins Monday, March 12. Volunteers throughout the county will begin to distribute thousands of fresh daffodils to area businesses and residents.
This longstanding program celebrates the American Cancer Society's mission to fight for everyone touched by cancer and to help create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. Best of all, daffodils are still available and each donation makes a difference in the fight against cancer.
Flowers will be available at Willie's Super Valu on Thursday, March 15 and Friday, March 16. For a $10 donation, you can get a bunch of 10 beautiful flowers. Other products including Dainty Daffodils, the potted, replantable, miniature daffodil bulbs, will also be available in limited quantities.
Dollars raised through Daffodil Days enable the American Cancer Society to save lives by helping people stay well by preventing cancer or detecting it early, helping people get well by being there for them during and after a cancer diagnosis, by finding cures through investment in lifesaving research, and by fighting back by working with lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and by rallying communities worldwide to join the fight.
