A new season of hope has arrived in Carlton County, thanks to the American Cancer Society Daffodil Days, which begins March 12. Volunteers throughout the area have begun to distribute thousands of fresh daffodils to homes, offices, hospitals, and places of worship.
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, there's still time for anyone to get involved. Daffodils are still available, and each donation makes a difference in the fight against cancer.
"Our community is making a difference against cancer, one daffodil at a time," said Larry Penk of Carlton and Janet Larson of Moose Lake, Daffodil Days chairs. "Thanks to the overwhelming support we have received for Daffodil Days, the American Cancer Society is helping people facing cancer, saving lives, and empowering all of us to fight back against the disease. We are sharing hope and making meaningful strides against the disease."
Local volunteers encourage residents to help make this year of Daffodil Days the most successful one ever by getting your daffodils today. Flowers are still available at various locations, including Super One Foods in Cloquet, March 12-15 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Marketplace Foods in Moose Lake, March 12-13 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Lake State Federal Credit Union in Moose Lake on March 15 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Northview Banks in Barnum, Finlayson and Willow River on March 15 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Funds 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.
