Flowers From The Rainflorist Participates in School Supply Drive
Every year, we pick several Give Back projects for the staff and the shop to participate in which benefits out local community. This year we donated an all pink basket filled with goodies for the Relay for Life in Sunrise and two large coolers filled with fishing accessories for the Dad’s Dolphin Daze Fishing Tournament. The Tournament provides funding for special needs children to ride horses as part of their therapy.
So now that school is right around the corner, we have chosen our next project of helping to collect and donate school supplies to the Sunrise Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 80 in their effort to see that no child in any of the schools in Sunrise attends without the necessary backpack and a starter of school supplies. The City Commission has donated
$5000.00 towards the project since every school child in Sunrise will have an opportunity to benefit. Many of the Commissioners and other business owners have joined in the collection of monies as well as supplies.
Flowers From The Rainflorist has donated composition booklets and some of our vendors have come through with notebook paper, pencils and crayons. If you’d like to donate, there are 700 back packs to fill, please drop off your supplies at the store and we will see that they are passed along to the FOP.
If you’d like to write a check for your donation, please make it out to “Sunrise Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 80” and we will see that it reaches Officer Roger Krege the President of the FOP.
We chose to move our Flower Shop to the City of Sunrise over 15 years ago and it was a great move. Our Sunrise Community is supportive of our business and even recently the City Commission passed a much needed resolution based on the “See it here..Buy it here…Keep us here” concept being used many Cities across the country to keep revenues in the local communities. The Resolution encourages all City Departments and employees to shop with local businesses.
The new school year is rapidly approaching! Donations are much appreciated…one pack of paper or 100 packs, or one packet of pencils or 1000….bring yours in and get a free long stem rose to take home! Let’s make it a good year for the students. .
