If you have a loved one who resides in a Philadelphia or suburban rehabilitation center, nursing home, hospital, or senior living community, or if you work with seniors or people with disabilities, please reach out to us. “The Happy Flower Day” project volunteers would like to bring fresh flowers to residents, clients, employees, or patients – free!
Mission: We gather beautiful day-old and surplus flowers from florists, grocery stores, floral specialty departments, and floral wholesalers. We re-purpose day-old bouquets for people who are sad, hurting, upset, sick, out-of-sorts, lonely, living without a purpose, ashamed, feeling left out, depressed, struggling with issues, grieving, worried, anxious, trying to beat an addiction, homeless, and others in need of a gift of flowers. And to healthcare workers, friends and family of people who are sick……..well, practically everyone!
