Community Christmas Gifting
In March of 2021 our farm started a program called ‘Give to the Community’. Our hope was that we could spread joy during this challenging year by bringing jars of fresh flowers to residents at local Nursing Homes, Long Term Care Homes Group Homes and Hospitals.
We know the residents and patients in these environments faced increased isolation during visitor restrictions made necessary by the pandemic over the last several years. We wanted these residents to know that their community was thinking of them.
We asked our customers and community to donate to cover the wholesale cost of these blooms, and our farm donated our time in labour and logistics to help these flowers reach as many Long Term Care residents as possible.
With the incredible help of our community, we were able to bring jars of fresh flowers to over 3000 residents in local Nursing Homes and Long Term Care Homes over the least 2.5 years.
Our community stepped up, and the outpouring of joy and gratitude from the residents who received these blooms was the highlight of our entire year here at the farm.
We are hoping that YOU will partner with us once again, to spread a little Christmas Cheer to these same Long Term Care residents.
We're collecting contributions to enable us to send a Red Kalanchoe plant in a ceramic pot, along with a Holiday card, to residents in Long Term Care this December. All contributions will cover the wholesale cost of the plant and pot (410 per plant). Our farm will be donating the labour and logistics to get these plants into the community. We are partnering with volunteers from the Rotary Club and with Enbridge gas to deliver these plants.
Each $10 contribution will send one Red Kalanchoe Plant to one Long Term Care resident.
*Please note: We are not a registered charity, we are a small business working to do something special in the community. We are not a registered charity, therefore tax will be charged on these $10 plants. We appreciate your understanding.
*Please note: Individual gifts will not be allotted to specific homes/residents. These funds will go into a pool, which we will be allocating amongst the long-term care homes, hospitals in group homes in our community.
If you are a business or individual who would like to reach out and sponsor the residents at an entire long-term care home, please email us at email@example.com and we would be happy to make arrangements with you to do so.
