Jan’s Flowers & Gift Shoppe participated once again in the Teleflora “Make Someone Smile Week.” This program is the floral industry’s leading benevolent program. This year’s event runs from Sunday, July 20 through Saturday, July 26.
Teleflora member florists and community volunteers will be out in their neighborhoods delivering Be Happy® Bouquets to those in need of smiles – such as hospital patients, senior citizens living in nursing homes and assisted living homes, and recipients of Meals-on-Wheels programs.
More than 40,000 of the company’s widely popular Be Happy® Mugs will be given to participating member florists. Member florists across the country work with local wholesalers and growers to secure donations of flowers. The local Teleflora florists then create cheerful Be Happy® Bouquets to deliver to residents in their local communities.
Last year’s program spanned over 200 cities and 350 facilities throughout the United States and Canada; and more than 1,000 florists donated their time. This is the fourteenth year that Don and Jan McDaniel have participated in the Make Someone Smile® Week.
You can make someone smile too by calling Jan’s at 352-4804 and have a Be Happy® Mug or another arrangement delivered.
