St. James will once again be participating in the American Cancer Society’s Daffodil Days. This year’s Daffodil Days will take place March 18-24,
2013. Celebrating Daffodil Days is much more than enjoying beautiful flowers; it’s about sharing hope for a world free of cancer. Last year, St. James raised an amazing $1,047.00 for the American Cancer Society!
On Jan. 27, Feb. 3, and Feb. 10, orders will be taken before and after church. A bunch will be sold for $10, pots sold for $12, and a vase and a bunch of daffodils will be $15. A special Boyd’s Bear designed exclusively for Daffodil Days can be ordered as part of the Bear and a Bunch for $25. We will also offer two special donations: Gift of Hope and Project Care.
The Gift of Hope program allows bunches of daffodils to be delivered anonymously to cancer patients in hospitals, treatment centers, and other facilities in our local community. Project Care helps to comfort children in our community by giving a special Boyd’s bear to them in their time of
need for a $25 donation. Bears are also delivered anonymously.
Orders must be in by Feb. 13, 2013, payable to “St. James UCC” with “Daffodils” written on the check. Please contact Joy Rubeo if you have any questions. As in the past, St. James will integrate this event into the church service on Sunday, March 24. Please mark your calendars! This service is always one of hope and inspiration for cancer survivors, caregivers, and anyone who has been affected by cancer.
