Hope House continues mission

Hope House at Hobart and William Smith Colleges is sponsoring Daffodil Days to benefit the American Cancer Society. The daffodil is a symbol of hope and to the American Cancer Society it represents the hope that cancer may one day no longer be a life-threatening disease.  The drive is one of the American Cancer Society’s oldest and most beloved fundraisers, raising more than $240 million in gross revenue over the past 14 years to support the American Cancer Society’s mission.

Caroline Dosky, a Daffodil Days volunteer, hopes the flowers will bring cheer to the students and other HWS community members as well as raise awareness and funds for the American Cancer Society.  “The Hope House is so excited to be running this fundraiser because we are dedicated to raising awareness about cancer in the community and on campus. Daffodil Days allows us to do both of these while spreading joy,” Dosky says. 

According to the Cancer Society, cancer is a top health concern among Americans, effecting one in every two men and one in every three women.  Every dollar raised during Daffodil Days further enables the American Cancer Society to make progress in saving lives by finding cures and helping patients get well and stay well in their effort to fight a disease which has already claimed the lives of millions of Americans.  Across campus, volunteer coordinators took requests for flowers in January and February and will deliver them in March.
