FLOWER ANGELS

WORDS BY CAROL RYAN

Not everything created in America is ‘for profit’.  Some projects Americans get involved in are created just because they reflect kindness and thoughtfulness. Many ideas have come of age just in the nick of time. For example, Flower Angels on wonderful Cape Cod is reaching out to bring joy to the lives of senior citizens living in retirement facilities around the Cape. Flowers are donated by Trader Joes and Shaws to name only two stores. Arrangements and delivery are accomplished by die hard volunteers who love the idea of giving back and remembering our senior population.

You will see their colorful van tooling around the neighborhood. The money for the van came from local contributors. If you visit their web site, www.flowerangelsusa.org you will get all the details and have an opportunity to get involved. Their video describes the reception these volunteers get as they visit these sometimes forgotten people.
