Our 4th Annual Flower Angels’ Veterans Buddy Project was a tremendous success that touched all hearts. Accompanied by Veterans from all branches of service, 276 nursing home resident Veterans were honored with flowers and flags in 20 nursing homes from Bourne to Provincetown and assisted living centers. These visits were truly meaningful due to the 40 volunteer Veterans and police officers who accompanied our Flower Angel volunteers on these visits. For many Veterans, being in the service fighting for our country’s freedom was the highlight of their lives. Letting the Veterans know they will never be forgotten, thanking them for their service and belting out patriotic songs together is a beautiful experience for everyone involved and greatly appreciated by the Veterans.
This memorable, special event would not have been possible without the detailed coordination diligently worked on by Terry and Donna. A big thank you to them and to our hardworking, dedicated volunteers who made the gorgeous patriotic “honor” floral arrangements and delivered them to the Veterans. Flower Angels team of amazing volunteers are truly special.
