Flower Angels are illuminating Cape Cod…one bouquet and one smile at a time!
Know what sparks the light in you . Then use that light to illuminate the world. ~ Oprah
Flower Angels USA has been blessed with having wonderful young men and woman from Community Connections, our local day program, volunteer to pick up the flowers donated from Trader Joes. They arrived in a wheel chair van filled to the brim with flowers and smiles from ear to ear. We all are delighted to have our new Flower Angel collectors helping to fulfill our mission. We send you a GIANT HUG and a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who has been helping including the drivers. We welcome and thank Kevin, our vase engineer, for the awesome job he did washing and putting away 137 vases on his very first day of work! He never stopped working or smiling. What a joy to have this wonderful man on our Flower Angel team. Flower Angel, Mara, made 12 beautiful bouquets this week and delivered. She loves deconstructing and arranging flowers and is an inspiration to all of us. We love you, Mara! One of our goals for Flower Angels USA is to provide paid positions in a loving, supportive environment for our special young adults. Everything we had imagined is coming to fruition so quickly which is exciting to witness. We expect there are many more unknown blessings on their way to us.
Because more volunteers are finding us and loving our mission, we were able to cheerfully deliver to six facilities this week including Eagle Pond, Mayflower, Pleasant Bay, EPOCH Brewster, Thirwood Place and Mashpee Center nursing home facilities—200+ smiles! Divia, one of our newest Flower Angels jumped in and instantly was a tremendous help in our workshop. She loves delivering to the patients and we are grateful to have her shining face in our midst.
We received several lovely notes including:
“Hello to the Flower Angels. You brought so much joy to all of us in EPOCH of Harwich. Flowers will do that! Thank you to Trader Joes also for donating these beautiful flowers. I wish I still had my house in West Dennis. I would donate all of the beautiful flowers we grew to you. God Bless” Eileen S.
