Repurposing flowers. Engaging seniors. Bouquets of Kindness takes flowers donated from weddings, events, grocers and wholesalers, and delivers them to senior citizens living in assisted living facilities, memory care and HUD funded long term housing. With all the needed tools, flowers, and volunteers, we encourage the residents to become engaged in creating beautiful floral arrangements and Bouquets of Kindness. Through this activity, they come out of their rooms, find moments of independence and fight off depression. We use flowers that were headed for the landfill, and remind a valued segment of our population that they are important and talented. Their beautiful bouquets are most often placed in their residential homes, but are also taken to public places, such as offices and restaurants - giving the seniors an added boost of confidence and a sense of purpose.
