Why volunteer?

Volunteering with the Canadian Cancer Society is a great opportunity for you to make a positive impact in your community, be part of a team, share your experience, learn new skills and develop lasting friendships. Volunteers are critical to our accomplishments and we wouldn’t be able to support, inform and empower those touched by cancer without you.

When you join our nationwide team, you have the combined strength of volunteers from across the country standing behind you to help you make a difference in someone’s life.

Current Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer for Daffodil Month

Volunteers are urgently needed in April. When you volunteer just a few hours of your time during Daffodil Month, you help save lives and support people who are living with cancer. Volunteering is a small gesture that makes an enormous difference.

Find local volunteer opportunities

We are currently recruiting volunteers to help with the Daffodil Days campaign. You can support those living with cancer in Newfoundland and Labrador by helping sell daffodil flowers. We need individuals and community groups to get involved with bringing these flowers of hope to our province. We can’t do it without you!

HOW CAN I HELP?

  1. Check to see if someone is already organizing a sale of daffodils in your community or workplace.

  2. If someone isn’t selling daffodils in your community or workplace contact your local Canadian Cancer Society office to become a community/workplace champion.

  3. Workplace Orders – St. John’s Metro Area - interested in placing a workplace order and having them delivered to your workplace? Download a workplace order form (PDF) for delivery within the St. John’s Metro area. Note: Orders need to be submitted by Monday, April 1st, 2019.
