Flowers to the Elderly Women on Mother's Day

The second location is:

Royal Care Skilled Nursing Facility

2725 Pacific Ave, Long Beach, CA 90806

we will get there at about 2:30

 

The third location is

Catored Manor

4010 N Virginia Rd, Long Beach, CA 90807

There by 330

 

These times are bit flexible, depending on how long we are at each place-- you can text me day of to get a better idea. [masked]

You don't have to come to all 3, just come where you can and if you want.

See you all Sunday!

This event sets out to make elderly women in nursing homes feel remembered and cared for by giving them each a flower on Mother's Day. Whether actual mothers or not, many in nursing homes are often neglected and lonely so we look to brighten their day with a flower. Last year volunteers brought reading materials and flowers to women residents of several nursing homes. Any volunteers that can bring flowers, reading materials and/or monetary donations to help cover flower costs are encouraged to contact Gina.

    Gina I want to apologize for the no show. my son came down from Camp Pendleton and surprise me it was the best Mothers Day present ever so I kind of got caught up in the moment. As promised I want to donate the $25 for the flowers I'm so sad that I missed this great opportunity but let me know where I can meet you or drop the money off. Again my apologies.

    Ralph's has 1 dozen roses for $9.99. I might grab some there. Cool?

    May 9, 2013

    • Gina

      That would be super. I go to the flower market in LA and buy what I can-- last year I got gerber daisys at .70 a stem, I think... hopefully the roses don't have thorns!

      May 10, 2013

  • Gina

    I have one of the locations established and am waiting to hear back form the others. The more volunteers we have and more money donated towards flowers, the more women we can bless! You all are wonderful!

      I'm not attending but for a good cause. I met an elderly lady, 89 yrs old, who will be all by herself on Mothers Day that we have adopted for the day and hopefully more.

      Thanks so much!

    They need volunteers at the Feed the Homeless Group. Have you thought about giving the women flowers and then I could contribute on two levels? ( I know they are not all elderly)

    May 7, 2013

    • Gina

      Thanks for the idea. You are welcome to feed the homeless in the morning and then come to flower delivery a the nursing facilities. I like the idea of two groups of people being helped.

      May 8, 2013

  • Lisa

    I can pitch in 25.00 for the flowers. Who will be purchasing them and have the locations been decided? I would also love to bring my two teens along so they can also give some love back :)

    May 7, 2013

    • Gina

      Thank you so much! This is great thing to bring your kids to, my mom used to take me to do this.

      May 8, 2013

  • sheri t.

    Do we bring the flowers?

    May 6, 2013

    • Gina

      I am going to go to the LA flower market to get flowers, you are welcome to contribute!

      May 8, 2013

  • marilyn h.

    Just my own personal comment from what I have learned about people in a care center. I hope I can deliver a flower to a lady who doesn't have visitors. I would be happy to buy a couple of potted plants to take if that is okay.

    May 6, 2013

    • Gina

      thank you that would be very nice!

    OK. Will donate $10

    1 · May 6, 2013

  • Gina

    i'm determining the locations now, I will post them as soon as I know. There will be at least two and you can chose where you want to go. i go to the flower market to get the flowers prior, so we will not start before 1. Any donations are appreciated as I do this out of my own pocket and the more flowers I can get, the more places we can do this. You're also welcome to do this on your own at any time... you just buy some flowers and go to a home.

  • Maricela S.

    I'd LOVE to do it but is earlier an option at all?

    May 6, 2013

  • Cori

    I'm wondering too how this will be done. Are we going to be in a group, each group assigned to different locations? Will each group be given flowers or each group is responsible for bringing/collecting flowers?

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
