Sheldon, Iowa — The daffodils are almost ready for you to pick up. The American Cancer Society O’Brien County Relay For Life sells daffodils every year as a symbol of hope, and as a fundraiser.
Cindy Runger with the Relay For Life says that all pre-paid orders of daffodils may be picked up this Tuesday, March 13th at Cook’s Cafe in Sheldon from 1:00 until 4:30 p.m. The Relay For Life team members thank you for your support.
Sheldon, Iowa — It’s time once again to start thinking about spring and making a donation to help save lives through the O’Brien County chapter of the American Cancer Society.
One of the first flowers of spring, the daffodil is the symbol of hope. And the O’Brien County American Cancer Society is selling daffodils again this year as a fundraiser for Relay for Life.
We talked with Loretta Vander Linden of the American Cancer Society and she tells us why she thinks people should consider buying daffodils.
She tells us that besides the very important work of education and research, funds donated through daffodil proceeds and other Relay For Life projects are also used for lodging of cancer patients and caretakers, prevention efforts, detection, and treatment, among other uses.
Daffodils will again be available three different ways. You can buy a bunch of daffodils for $10.00, a bunch and a vase for $15.00, or a 4-inch potted dainty for $8.00.
The spokesperson for the O’Brien County chapter of the American Cancer Society, Cindy Runger says that the 2018 O’Brien County Relay For Life will be held in Sheldon on Tuesday, June 5th. She says daffodil orders are being taken now through February 21st. To place your order, you can call Runger at 541-7122 or Vander Linden at 324-2273. You can also call Hair Headquarters, Impressions, or stop at the Sheldon Public Library.
Daffodils will be available for pickup on Tuesday, March 13th from 1:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Cook’s Cafe. Runger says, “By giving daffodils to friends, family members, and even cancer patients, you are giving hope because together, we are helping people stay well, helping people get well, finding cures, and fighting back.”
