The Dream Foundation has suspended its popular Flower Empower program delivering blooms to the elderly and ill.
However local orchid growers Gallup and Stribling has donated 220 bouquets and Westerlay Orchids has given 840 plants, with the charity’s floral coordinator Valerie Banks setting up a drive-through at the foundation’s office with instructions for “ding dong delivery” for volunteers.
The flowers were delivered to community center centers and Heritage House, Serenity House, and Sarah House, local fire stations and Los Robles Hospital in Thousand Oaks.
The charity’s 10th annual Flower Empower lunch is scheduled for June 25 at the Rockwood Woman’s Club.
A blooming good idea…
