PHILADELPHIA -- Snappy's Convenience Stores helped raise $3,393 for the American Cancer Society through the 37th annual Daffodil Days campaign, GantDaily.com reported.
During the fundraising effort, 10 Snappy's Convenience Stores located throughout central Pennsylvania sold special Daffodil Days donation cards to customers. The purchasers wrote their names on the cards, which were hung at each participating store during the month of March. Proceeds benefit the American Cancer Society's programs of cancer research, education, advocacy and patient services, according to the report.
The top-selling store this year was Snappy's of Bald Eagle, managed by Sonya Harsonchuck. Cheryl Christine, an employee at the Bald Eagle store, was the overall top seller.
"I help do this because of my husband, who is a cancer survivor," said Christine.
"All contributions allow the American Cancer Society to save more lives and create more birthdays by helping people stay well, helping people get well, by finding cures and by fighting back," American Cancer Society Cancer Control Director April Sherry said in the report. "The American Cancer Society wishes to thank all 10 Snappy's Convenience Stores for their dedication to this event."
The American Cancer Society is the nationwide, community-based voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives and diminishing suffering from cancer through research, education, advocacy and service.
