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 delivered 6,564 arrangements in July & August for a grand total of 285,987. Our volunteers worked 1,717 hours in July & August.
Thank you for visiting - we hope to see you in person soon
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
"My mother was recently at Transitions LifeCare. Before she passed away, you delivered a beautiful bouquet of hydrangeas to her room. That act of kindness meant so much to her and our family. It really lifted our spirits during a very hard time. Thank you so much and may God continue to bless your flower ministry."
