The BC Cancer Foundation wants the public to know that volunteer canvassers will be knocking on people’s doors in Port Alberni in the next couple of weeks, but will not be accepting cash donations at the door.
The intent, according to a BC Cancer Foundation spokesperson, is that canvassers will introduce local residents to the BC Cancer Foundation, the largest funder of cancer research in the province, and its monthly donor program.
Monthly donations support research taking place at the BC Cancer Agency—helping improve cancer care for those in the community.
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,” the spokesperson said.
If someone signs up for monthly gifts, they will receive an e-mail confirmation immediately.
If someone has any questions relating to the door-to-door program, they can call Colleen Malli at 1-888-906-2873 or visit bccancerfoundation.com online.
