Purple vest-wearing canvassers pound pavement for cancer foundation

Monthly donations support life-saving research taking place at BC Cancer Agency

Canvassers with BC Cancer Foundation.

SURREY — People wearing purple vests are hitting the pavement locally.

BC Cancer Foundation canvassers are currently going door-to-door in Surrey in order to introduce local residents to the agency, the largest funder of cancer research in the province, and its monthly donor program.

Monthly donations support the life-saving research taking place at the BC Cancer Agency, the organization says.

For security and safety purposes, canvassers wear ID badges and BC Cancer Foundation purple vests.”Please note that BC Cancer Foundation canvassers will invite you to take part in the foundation’s monthly giving program only and will not accept cash or one-time gifts at the door,” says Melissa Serraglio, the foundation’s communications co-ordinator.

“Once you have signed up for monthly gifts, you will receive an email confirmation immediately.”

Those with questions about the foundation’s door-to-door program, or about its monthly giving program, can call Colleen Malli at 1-888-906-2873 or visit bccancerfoundation.com.
