Artificial Flowers Needed! La Grande Donation Drive

With all that is going on in the world right now and people being quarantined in their homes, it’s easy to think about how this affects ourselves, but over and over we are seeing stories of people who are helping and doing for others. It is truly inspiring! This is the case within our own Heart ‘n Home community as well.  We have a wonderful group of Volunteers who help to bring a smile to the faces of our patients, but right now with the stay at home orders they are not able to make visits. So our team is getting creative with ways to still serve them and others. Most facilities are not allowing any people into their facilities including family of their residents.  This is in effect to reduce the exposure to COVID-19 on our most vulnerable.  While this is necessary to keep them safe we also know that this brings increased loneliness.

Our many Volunteer Coordinators have been trying to think outside the box for ideas that can bring some joy and comfort to our patients in facilities.  Sarah Bittick, the La Grande Volunteer Coordinator came up with an idea to bring an early spring to facilities.  Here’s how:

The La Grande Heart ‘n Home office wants to fill the grounds of area facilities with colorful fake flowers.  “My hope is that with enough community donations we can have a sea of beautiful flowers all over the lawns of the facilities,” Sarah explains. The flowers will stay out on the lawn and brighten the views for the residents inside.  When the flowers need to be removed for lawn care, they will be used as flower arrangements inside the facilities (with proper precautions taken).

We need your help! If you would like to donate used or new artificial flowers, please drop them off in the donation boxes available at any of the following locations:

The donation drive starts today, April 13th and runs through April 30th.  We will start placing flowers on May Day (May 1st) and continue until we have all the flowers placed.  We appreciate your support in helping show our area senior citizens some love!
