The Flower Shuttle recycles flowers to people living with sickness, terminal illness, poverty and disability who don't normally get flowers, because we care.
VOLUNTEERS worked 1,310 hours and delivered 5,590 arrangements in October & November for a grand total of 328,721.
Thank you for visiting - we hope to see you in person soon!
Flower Shuttle volunteers Fran (pictured above), Lee and Shannon will be teaching a class in February at the Raleigh Rescue Mission to the women who receive services there.
Words of thanks from some of our recipients:
"One of my favorite places to meet with friends or visit alone as a workspace is Esteamed Coffee in Cary. (Recently) as I was packing up to leave, I noticed that the flower container had a sticker on it. Upon closer look, I saw that the flowers were from The Flower Shuttle. Thank you all for the many, many ways that you continue to bless our community with love, care, and beauty. You all are the absolute best!"
-- Fran Spier Saylor
"Thank you so much for the flowers that you all brought to our school! This really made our day, and they were beautiful. Your kindness and generosity during what has been a very challenging time for most educators (and all people) does not go unnoticed.
-- A. Johnson, Principal, Mt. Vernon Middle School
"I cried when my husband came to visit me in Rex Hospital and brought me up a beautiful arrangement of flowers from your organization. You really and truly do not know what you did for this old woman!"
