Stanley florist giving back during COVID-19 crisis
105 Main Florist & Home Décor of Stanley is helping give back to those is need during the COVID-19 crisis. For a recommended donation of $5 (or more) they will give you a red, yellow or patriotic bow or, you can ask for the bow(s) to be delivered.
Volunteer Mark Caldwell said “Most people are donating more than $5, but that is what we are recommending” and added “We’ve really had a great response, even folks from outside of Stanley willing to help our great little town in this time of need”.
But the donations aren’t being used to pay for the bow material or employee’s or gas or overhead…..100% of the money donated is going toward the purchase of food to help re-stock food pantries in Stanley.
“We have four pantries indicating need right now and possibly others” explained store owner Gilbert Puckett. “It’s humbling to be a part of this and inspiring seeing all who are willing to help”.
On Saturday, April 25th, at 9am, they had a “drive-through” line. Drivers could donate and grab the bow they wanted. Bows were clipped on a line to maintain social distancing.
Mark expressed “I’m just glad that we are able to be one small part of such a great contribution for those in need right now”.
If you could not make the drive through line you can call (704) 931-4140 to make a donation and they will deliver the bow or bow(s).
