by purchasing a bouquet of daffodils and supporting the American Cancer Association’s Daffodil

a loved one has to go through cancer treatments. Trust me, knowing there are people who really
care makes a difference in someone’s life. A little bit goes a long way. Just think, if every student and faculty member just purchased
one bouquet of daffodils, Genesee Community College would raise over
$15,000 for the American Cancer Society. You can make a difference.
