FOCUS  

Daffodil Campaign, Site Coordinator - North York

 

WHY WE NEED YOU 

At CCS, fundraising volunteers are vital because the vast majority of our organizational funding comes from donations by everyday Canadians through fundraising activities and events.  

 

Our annual Daffodil Campaign mobilizes Canadians from coast to coast, raising funds for work aimed at helping people live longer and improving the lives and experiences of those affected by cancer.  The Daffodil Pin is a recognized symbol that is worn in April to raise awareness around cancer issues and demonstrate outward support for those living with cancer. 

The Site Coordinator will coordinate and support a team of Pin Ambassador volunteers at one or two storefront locations.
