AgeCare Seton Donation

 
YYCPetalProject_Floral_Donation

It’s always incredible to see the impact a donation has on our community. This weekend we received eight centerpieces from a wedding and repurposed them into these beautiful bedside bouquets. We predicted we’d make about 30 arrangements to deliver to AgeCare, a seniors residence in Seton. Today we finished with exactly 100 bouquets — our largest single-event donation to date!

As much as estimations are clearly a learning process for us, our biggest takeaway was to never underestimate how far a random act of kindness can go in support of individuals’ emotional well-being. Out of the 100 residents we delivered to, many were moved to tears over the small gesture and expressed their gratitude in feeling acknowledged in an unexpected way. Remi, our smallest volunteer with the biggest heart, was such a presence as always while helping us deliver the flowers.

Thank you to the generous newlyweds who donated, and of course our amazing volunteers! 🌸
