post by Billie Owens in announcements, HomeCare & Hospice Foundation

Winter may still have Western New York in its grip, but the HomeCare & Hospice Guild is looking for some extra hands to help provide an early taste of spring.

To make the event a success, volunteers are needed help sort flowers on March 3 or deliver flowers on March 4 and 5 to businesses that have pre-sale orders or even assist with on-site sales beginning March 5.

The guild is celebrating 19 years of flower power and members plan on distributing Traditional Spring Bouquets ($8) and Bouquets of Hope ($16) throughout Genesee and Wyoming, Allegany, and Cattaraugus counties.

Proceeds will benefit the HomeCare & Hospice Foundation.

Drivers for flower delivery are the greatest need. Anyone who can volunteer to help should contact Linda Cummings at 585-343-7596 or 1-877-277-2615.
