Again this year, an effort spearheaded by Connetquot Teachers Association Coordinator of Community Advocacy, Nancy Dunlop
brought together teachers, secretaries, AP's, Food Service Workers, Central Office personnel and retirees to raise more than $4,000 for the American Cancer Society
According to Dunlop
"... this year's total exceeds last year's effort by almost $1,000.
Anne Thorenson of the ACS
reports that Connetquot's total exceeds all other school districts in Suffolk County!
would like to express her
thanks to all the Connetquot building coordinators for their assistance in this year's fund-raising effort.
According to Thorenson, Connetquot's efforts, "... coordinated by the great work done by Nancy Dunlop
..." has helped us raise over $185,000 this year.
That money will make it possible for the ACS
to fund cancer research, educate the public and stress the importance of early detection.
Thorenson believes that "... the Daffodil Days program represents the chance to fight back against cancer by raising funds and awareness to help beat the disease.
While Daffodil Days involves offering daffodils every spring to donors in appreciation for their contributions, it is about more than just giving beautiful flowers.
It is everyone's opportunity to share hope for a world free of cancer."
On March 11th, Mrs. Dunlop
, Mrs. Schiappa, Mrs. Schwartz, Mrs. Bermudez and members of the Helping Hands Club
wrapped their daffodils for delivery.
Congratulations to Mrs. Dunlop
and all the volunteers who made this year's Daffodil Days fund raising effort so successful!
