For over 10 years now, the “Flower Power” team has been delivering flowers donated by local nurseries to various assisted-living homes and hospice locations.
At present, we go to 25 locations within the county. These flowers are donated weekly from Eufloria Nursery, Koch California, Skyline Nursery and Holland America in Nipomo and Arroyo Grande.
This generosity allows a team of seven to cover the entire county each week. We wish to provide smiles and a little joy to about 1,500 people, including the residents, family members and staff at these locations. I am most appreciative for the many hours voluntarily given and the vehicles and other resources donated by all these men who provide support. They are Will Perry, Jim Tobias, Norm Mayer, Bill Murphy, Roy Cinowalt, Bud Laster and myself.
We have delivered over 800,000 flowers in the past 10 years. We plan to continue for another 10 years. Thank you, nurseries and volunteers.
